Family offers us a sense of security by showing that we have someone in our lives with whom we can share our worries, and so on. It also requires liability and mutual respect.
The International Day of Families not only highlights the importance of a healthy and well-balanced family, but also extends understanding of the economic, demographic, and social factors that influence families.
Why do we Celebrate International Family Day?
Every year on the 15th of May, the International Day of Families is celebrated.
The major goal of honoring International Day of Families is to raise awareness of the importance and value of family. It is also vital to draw attention to the difficulties that impact families all around the world. This day also shows that the global community recognizes the importance of families as primary social units and expresses concern about global issues.

Importance of International Day of Families
There are various reasons why the International Day of Families is important. It not only raises awareness about difficulties affecting families around the world, but it also serves as a reminder of the importance of family in society. Many of us wouldn’t be where we are now if we did not have good families.
Our families raise us. While not every family is ideal, and some individuals do not get along with their relatives, you can use this day to honor whoever you consider “family” in your life, even if they are not your blood relations.
Provides an Opportunity to Have Difficult Conversations
It allows us to discuss challenging issues that families around the world are dealing with. Poverty and domestic abuse are only a few of the hindrances that families face.
Reminds Us That Families Come in All Shapes and Sizes
This day also reminds us that every family is unique. Families are diverse in terms of “shapes,” sizes, and colors.
Brings Attention to the Importance of Family in Society
Families are the foundation of a society and we can build our communities over time by fostering stronger families. We can come together to support other families in need and continue to work together to make the world a better place.
