June 1st marks Global Day of Parents, a day proclaimed by the United Nations as a day to appreciate parents all across the world for their selfless sacrifice and care towards their children.
All of us who work with children and families know how important, wonderful and difficult your role is, dear parents. As if being a parent isn’t challenging enough, you’ve faced so much extra stress in the last few months!
In addition to taking care of yourself during COVID-19, and the earthquake in Zagreb, you also carried the care of the youngest and most vulnerable members of our society on your back. From online school and staying home to fears, worries, sadness, anger and a whole whirlwind of emotions, you have been there for your children.
While they maybe don’t tell you THANK YOU in words, we are sure they say THANK YOU in a thousand different ways.
From the team of the Zagreb Child And Youth Protection Center, THANK YOU on behalf of children and adults.
We see you.
We are here for you.
We congratulate you on your day!
