When is National Daughter’s Day 2022

In 2022, September 25, Sunday is going to be observed as National Daughter’s Day to tribute to all the daughters. That prove to be the blessing of God and a source of pleasure for their parents. Every year the day is celebrated with great zeal and fervor to honor the princess of a father and coolness of a mother’s eye. A few countries celebrate the day every fourth Sunday of September. But in the United States of America, September 25 is the only day to set all the daily hectic activities aside and pay exclusive heed to your daughters.

For every couple, having a daughter is the greatest blessing of God. She brings a lot of joy and excitement to her parents’ life. Contrary to boys, girls are affectionate, loving, jolly, and curious, and they very easily fill the house will laughter and beauty. As the parents start growing old, nothing is dearer to them than their daughter because she lets them recall the memories and beauty of their youth. Though daughters are associated and attached with their mothers a lot, none in this world can love a daughter more than her father.

The birth of a female child proves to be a game-changer for her father and transforms him completely. Since her birth, the father gets the chance to step by step witness how a little girl turns into a woman. Mothers play a significant role in raising a daughter and making her prosperous, empowered, and morally cultivated. But there is always a strong and supportive dad behind every successful and confident daughter.

National Daughter’s Day gives a chance to put their tough routine and hectic tasks aside, spare quality time with their daughters, and show unconditional love to them. The special day acts as an impetus behind reviving a healthy relationship of parents with their daughters. Though the sons prove to be the financial supporters of their families, for all the aging parents, daughters maintain a level of connectivity and commitment that keep the families united.

History of National Daughter’s Day:
National Daughter’s Day has originated in those nations, where the birth of a female child is considered a stigma. Though the day is observed in the USA on every September 25, the actual concept behind this day has gained momentum in India. As per Hindustan Times, “Unlike other countries in the world, there has always been a certain stigma attached to being a girl child in India, and while this may no longer be the case in the big cities, it is still quite widespread in India. When a woman gives birth to a girl, she is penalized.”

Along with India, many other developing countries consider daughters a burden. But this mental bankcrupcy is not only associated with developing countries. Even in the USA, women have been facing unbearable obstacles. The daughter’s Day is also viewed in the context of MeToo movement because from the very beginning, various societies have viewed women as inferior to men. Nowadays, all the developed countries raise slogans in the favor of woman empowerment and feminism. But in all those countries, till 1920, women didn’t get even the right to vote. And till 1960’s wives usually stayed at home and their husbands used to work to feed the families. Still after making tremendous progress, women in the USA are facing gender discrimination.

In all these circumstances, the emergence of National Daughter’s Day proves to be a whiff of fresh air for all the daughters, who are facing inequality, gender discrimination, domestic violence, sexual & child abuse, and child marriage. In patriarchal societies, women are in severe plight; they are not sent to schools, and even they don’t have a right to live. Mentally downtrodden people mostly kill their daughters in the desire of sons. Therefore, the United Nations came forward to bridge a very deep gap between boys and girls in society, and the first time October 11, 2012 was celebrated to serve the purpose. But now, the day is observed on September 25 worldwide and on every fourth Sunday of September in India.

When is National Son’s Day?

National Son’s Day:

September 28, Wednesday is celebrated on National Son’s Day to acknowledge the sons and give exclusive prestige and consideration to them. Since 2018, the day has been celebrated to reveal societal views about sons, who are going to be future fathers, leaders, role models, and financial supporters of their families.

History of National Son’s Day:

The idea of National Son’s Day originated in 1990, for some people wanted a day similar to “National Take Your Daughter to Work” Day. In 1998, National Son’s Day led to the emergence of “National Take Your Sons to Work Day”. Later on, both the days were merged in 2003 to be celebrated as a single event. But in recent years, the credit goes to Jill Nico, who resurfaced the observance of National Son’s Day in 2018. He aimed to honor the sons and their families that are raising their male children to make them responsible men and useful citizens of society. In numerous countries, the boys are also spotlighted on March 4, but most commonly, the day is associated with September 28.
In different societies, the birth of a male child is considered more pleasurable than that of a female child. But raising a son well and making him a purposeful, honorable, and ambitious personality is a very hectic task for both the parents, who play a contributory role and make tremendous effort in the physical & emotional development and moral cultivation of their boys. A lack of attention and even a single mistake from the parental side can lead to developmental issues in later years.
The Day guides that parents must make their sons responsible, kind, and morally cultivated. And both parents should strive to have a good relationship with their boys and end the generation and communication gap among them.

How To Observe The National Son’s Day?

To make the day memorable, pleasurable, and effective for your sons, you should have some new ideas to spend quality time with your male children.
In this fastest-growing era of technology, everyone is striving to make money. Therefore, none has sufficient time to give special attention to his/her family, exclusively the children. So National Son’s Day is the perfect day to tell your sons that they have a significant position in your life. On that day, power off your mobile phones and turn off your social media notifications. Get up early in the morning, have breakfast with your sons, and plan a lavishing and a full-day tour with them. Ask about their daily school routine, know about their friends and company, find out their problems, and try to resolve them as much as you can. Bridge the gap between you and your sons and prove to be supportive for them to revive their lost confidence.
Appreciate the aims, favorite activities, and hobbies of your sons. Play games, watch movies, and go shopping with them. Share the old memories of their early life and acts of mischief with them. In short, just prove to your sons that they are the beauty and the source of happiness in your life. Tell them that you are striving to give them a better future. All your efforts are to make them successful men and give them a luxurious life. Your meeting with your sons should be a combination of fun, humor, and pieces of advice. And you should share some practical life skills to make your sons more confident and morally cultivated. At the end of that day, you will experience that you have revived your relationship with your son(s).
To conclude, I can say that National Son’s Day is the best opportunity for the parents to infuse a new spirit in their sons.
