Sons and Daughters Day – August 11

family with grandparents parents and grandchildren on spring day

The best gift you can give your sons and daughters is time. This is an excellent day to let your children know how glad you are to be a part of their lives, hear the events of their days and share family stories.

Although the origins of the day are unknown, it has been celebrated since 1936 in various parts of the U.S. Other influences of this obscure holiday may include Bring Your Son/Daughter to Work Day and Father-Daughter/Mother-Son Days.

Don’t let the miles keep you apart – reminisce about your proudest or silliest moment or favorite memories together during a phone call, text, video chat, email, or surprise them with a hand-written letter or greeting card! If you live close, schedule a visit, enjoy a day trip or go out to lunch or dinner together.
