The United Nations (UN) has called on the world community to frame and implement family-oriented policies to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on the occasion of the 'Global Day of Parents' being observed on June 1.

The UN-established 'Global Day of Parents' is being observed on the 1st of June every year since 2012 to honour parents throughout the world. According to the UN, the observance provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.

Emphasizing the critical role of parents in the raising of children, the Global Day of Parents recognises also that the family has the primary responsibility for nurturing and protection of children, states the UN.

It has been advised by the UN that for the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.

"The central goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the world leaders in 2015, focus on ending poverty, promoting shared economic prosperity, social development and people's well-being while protecting the environment. Families remain at the centre of social life ensuring the well-being of their members, educating and socialising children and youth and caring for young and old," suggests the UN to world community.

The UN has called on the member states to  1 to 5 relating to doing away with poverty and hunger; ensuring healthy lives and promoting of well-being for all ages; ensuring educational opportunities throughout the lifespan and achieving gender equality.
