National Kids Day was created in 1994 to help encourage adults to spend more meaningful time with their children. The mission of National Kids Day is to encourage adults, whether you’re a parent, grandparent, relative or teacher, to take the time to get to know your child. Spending more time with them helps build strong, resilient and happy children. Children who know they are loved and cared for by adults in their life can feel confident and comfortable just being a kid. So take some time on this day to make some new memories.
