National Working Parents Day

Working harder than ever to make it work.

2020 has been a tricky year and social distancing requirements have made the complicated job of being a working parent just that much trickier. 

On Sept. 16, National Working Parents Day honors those who work to provide for their family. This year, honoring those parents who are doing their best to give their all at work and at home, sometimes at the same time and under exceptionally trying times, seems even more important. 

On this day, take a moment to acknowledge someone for their dedication and perseverance as they work to support their families and keep up with those cherished family meals, family game nights, new school environments or just the laundry.

And if you’re a working parent, don’t forget to pat yourself on the back.
