Give Kids Peace.
|KidsPeace believes that kids grow in the context of supportive relationships. Children are helped most by people closest to them, and family is the single most powerful support system for kids, particularly mothers and fathers. With over a century of experience, KidsPeace knows that kids from strong and supportive families are more resilient in life and more likely to succeed.|
Affirming the family and all who care for kids.
|National Family Month is an important step toward building a nation of confident kids and growing stronger and healthier families. The celebration was created by KidsPeace to raise awareness and underscore the importance of family — kids, mothers, fathers, relatives and caregivers — and to encourage supporting one another. Child-development experts have described “family” as “someone who has a strong emotional attachment to another.” National Family Month provides an opportunity for families to share special time together, to develop or renew relationships, identify or rediscover needs, to remind everyone of the importance of family involvement in raising laser pointer pen, confident kids for America’s future.|
Uniting to strengthen families.
|Grass roots organizations, clubs, schools, day cares, libraries and other groups across the country are celebrating National Family Month in their communities, and families are finding ways to spend meaningful time with each other. Members of the 105th United States Congress have passed House Concurrent Resolution #302 recognizing the importance of children and families and expressing support for the goals of National Family Month. The event is also listed in Chase’s official national directory of holidays.|
Building hope for the future.
|Clinical studies indicate that the weeks prior to summer is a significant time period for families, and often when crises occur as kids prepare to conclude the school year and families adjust to being together again more often. Celebrated annually from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, National Family Month was created by KidsPeace not merely as a national observance, but as a vital annual event to focus on family relationships during this critical period, providing a specific opportunity for parents, grandparents or caregivers to be involved in the lives of their children.|
