International Day of the Family

Published: 2018.06.16 - 11:58:59   /  /  Alina Iglesias Regueyra  /  translated by  Luis E. Amador Dominguez  /

International Day of the FamilyThe first social scenario where life goes by is the bosom of the family. The first opportunity to interact with other human beings, to measure ourselves as people, to trust and compete, occurs in close surroundings: the family. It is the environment where habits, customs, beliefs, superstitions, knowledge, fantasies, stimuli and dreams are created or banished; where virtues and educational values necessary for coexistence in society are cultivated; where the respect to the foreign and strange thing is taught, and the new that arrives is contrasted or rejected.

A quarter of a century ago, since September 20, 1993, the General Assembly of the United Nations officially decided that May 15 of each year would celebrate International Family Day, with the aim of highlighting this important structure of a society whose effective functioning depends more on spiritual factors than on formal aspects, such as traditional archetypes or behavior patterns that are apprehended and imitated mechanically, even against the true desires, peculiarities or motivations of its members.

On this occasion, the role of the family and social public policies directed towards the evolution of education and the well-being of each member will be highlighted, mainly of the minors: children, adolescents and young people in charge of transmitting these values in the future, in the family bosom that they can create based on their experiences, expectations and the examples received.

The importance of family members dedicated to the care of others, the so-called caregiver will be considered; who often have full-time and long-term careers for long-term mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles, in-laws and even siblings or disabled or chronically ill children.

This is an important issue, which is urged by respect on the part of everyone and knowledge of good practices aimed at balancing the family and work life of caregivers, who need special consideration when assuming roles not included in their profession, but performed by necessity, for love or both motivations. This includes the two parents: mother and father, in their role as educators and caregivers at the same time.

In the same way, the celebration of this Family Day includes those who exercise the corresponding professions of specialized care to these people, both in the private or state sector. They are professionals who support the daily life of working mothers and fathers, and who shelter and care for the elderly or disabled in their work centers.

With this celebration, the debate about the importance and necessity of certain premises to achieve sustainable development is stimulated, among other elements "through the education of sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, world citizenship and the appreciation of cultural diversity and the contribution of culture to sustainable development," as reflected in the respective Objectives.

Let this date serve to celebrate the best company; to avoid loneliness and foster filial love and tenderness; to show with pride our small but relevant role in the most intimate and close circle, but also the most decisive in the life of any person, whose performance in it will condition their future and that of those who accompany them or receive their influence. Thanks to the family, we exist and achieve our goals or not. Let us think about it, an invitation made by Radio Enciclopedia.
