Rest Up! It’s National Parents Day Off
We all have busy lives. If you're a parent, that's an understatement, right? Your schedule is constant when it comes to getting the kids ready for the day, taking them to school, and all the heavy lifting involved in between. Maybe you have wee ones that aren't in school that require your undivided attention morning, noon and night. Sure, there are breaks in between to include trips to daycare or using the television as a babysitter for a few moments at a time, but have you really taken the time to do something for yourself as a parent?
The digital library company, Epic, came forward just last year on September 14th, to create what is known as National Parents Day Off. Hey, it's worth a try, no doubt. According to Epic, this special day is designed to help bring awareness to the importance of parenting by reminding these hard working individuals to take a moment for themselves. Whether for 15 minutes at a time or for a few hours, "me time" is crucial for continuing a healthy family environment.
We all need a break every once in awhile, so no better time than the present. Epic has added a fun aspect to National Parents Day Off by asking parents to share on social media, images of the hilarious, random and messy side of parenting. Do you recall some of those outrageous or magical moments? If so, we want to hear from you! PLEASE SHARE SOME OF YOUR FUNNY STORIES WHEN IT COMES TO PARENTING AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, HAVE AN AWESOME NATIONAL PARENTS DAY OFF!
