Family – The School of Love

In every culture and time period, the family has stood as the most fundamental human institution. Family is the starting point of life, the sustainer of well-being, and the school of love, fundamentally involves unconditional true love.

This day helps parents, children and teachers to know each other more closely. To understand parenting and their empathetic bondage by extracting from past, bearing present and exploring future by involving them directly in the classroom to create a triangular relationship among student-teacher-&-parent we organize Parents’ Day in each semester as a vital part of Art of Living course in Daffodil International University, Dhaka.

Why Parents’ Day?
A family begins with the joining together of man and woman, husband and wife, becoming father and mother – and parents. The most powerful of human bonds is the parent-child relationship. Commitment to family has always been a core value. Tragically, however, what was often held as a common value, recognized as common sense, even understood as self-evident in the past, is sometimes not so today. As our nation struggles with effects of family breakdown, youth violence and a host of other critical problems, more and more voices are calling for a re-examination of our priorities and fundamental values. Too often we have let other concerns take precedence over our responsibilities as parents. Yet is there any more important calling than that of nurturing and raising a child?

Unfortunately, our popular culture over the past several decades has emphasized self-fulfillment and self-gratification. Such focus on the self runs counter to the essence of parenthood, which fundamentally involves unconditional true love. Parents’ Day provides an opportunity to recognize and promote parenting as a central aptitude for our families and communities. More than just a time to celebrate, it is an occasion to make a statement about what is important in our society. It is a chance to create a positive tradition based on a core axiom – that the role of parents is crucial in the nurturing and development of student, and thus requires investment, focus, and commitment. The theme of Parents’ Day designed to celebrate and strengthen the relationship among father-mother-students & teachers.

The Opportunity
The establishment of Parents’ Day affords a wonderful opportunity for the university to honor exemplary parents and to encourage families everywhere to invest in our most precious resource – our children.
