The 2014 Portland Universal Children’s Day was such a massive deal in Oregon, even though the celebration was merely one-day long. The parents prepared feasts for the kids; the local establishments offered discounts or freebies to young visitors. Every school had a special program dedicated to acknowledging childhood and the youths of today as well. More importantly, celebrating Children’s Day has become an annual thing all over the city ever since.
While not everyone may see the importance of devoting a single day in a year solely for the little ones, it still matters to do so due to the following reasons.
It Can Raise Adults’ Awareness Of The Children’s Needs
The main benefit of celebrating this special event for kids is that the adults will be able to tell what else they can do to improve the children’s lives in the community. For instance, should the public park be more kid-friendly? Are there youngsters in the neighborhood who need medical assistance? Attending the celebration will allow them to act faster than knocking on everyone’s door.
It Helps Kids To Feel Their Significance
The growing number of depressed children is no longer a secret to the world. Many tend to think their busy or divorced parents do not love them, while others are victims of bullying. Nonetheless, when you honor their existence during Children’s Day, their sense of hopelessness may decrease since they’ll feel how significant they are throughout – and hopefully even after – the event.
It Allows The Youngsters To De-Stress
Lastly, the celebration gives kids an opportunity to forget their homework and other projects. They can play games and have fun without their parents nagging them to study. Although they do not have huge responsibilities at home, you see, some children often feel pressured to excel at school. Thus, these little ones get robbed of their chance to be as carefree as the other kids their age.
The Children’s Day won’t happen until November. Think of how or what you can contribute now on that particular day. Good luck!
