A Brief History of The National Son Day in the United States
According to an article that was published on August 20, 1944, in St. Joseph News-Press/Gazette, J Henry Dusenberry was the first who put forward this idea way back in 1936, almost 84 years ago. He said that there must be a day for sons and daughters. And now the USA has been celebrating it since 22nd April 1993 regularly. But some of the records also show that it was celebrated in 1988 on August 11.
It was first celebrated on April 22, 1993. This was the first occasion when children have their recognition for the first time on a national level. Since then the event has been celebrated regularly and now has become one of the favorite events in the United States of America.
Why We Celebrate The Sons Day
Life is so fast that no one has time for others, in fact, no one has time for himself. This is such a miserable state where one starts thinking like a machine that has only to perform the tasks which have been already programmed in it. The aim of our lives is just to earn money to facilitate our family and the race of making more have forgotten us our families. Our more earning to provide them with a comfortable life has already done too much to them. We do not have time for our spouse and children. For God’s sake, it is real life. Do not make it like a machine, spend some time with your family.
Take them somewhere you only have the company of them and there is no one else.
Have the parents of Sons ever bother to think that why there is an immense generation gap between the generation of the last century and this century? And why would you think like that as it is a general role in The United States that everyone has its own life and he is free to live his life the way he wants. This type of approach just taken away burdens from us for the time being but once our children step in to their practical life they respond in the same as we did to them in some stage of their lives.
Remember your children, especially sons are your responsibility to take care of them and give them everything they need but the most important thing is the Ethic that you transfer to your sons and daughters. Remember, if you make excuses in this regard, then ready for the same music in the future. But there will be a bit different this time. And can you guess what will be the difference, yes you are right, your children will leave when you need them the most?

Play With Your Pet Together:
“If I had my child to raise all over again, I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later. I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less. I would do less correcting and more connecting. I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes. I’d take more hikes and fly more kites. I’d stop playing seriously and seriously play. I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars. I’d do more hugging and less tugging.“ – Diane Loomans

What Is The Importance Of The National Sons Day For Parents Living In the USA?
There is a huge significance of this Day for the father and children living in the USA.
On this day parents come closer to their children. Parents come across the problems that are facing by their children due to their busy lifestyles. They express ideas with each other and thus the bridge between them becomes so narrow that it becomes easier to understand the needs, rights, and responsibilities of each other. How celebrating this Day will help the parents that are going to fall on the 28th of September, every year.
Sorting Out Issues:
The coming Sons Day in the USA will provide parents and children a chance to come to close each other and share their issues, sorrows and also spread happiness. This allows the parents to sort out the issue and sorrows of the sons and daughters very quickly and deeply. Thus the solution to different problems becomes easier and understanding and trustworthiness increase.
The day will help in creating a friendly and healthy environment among boys and their fathers. In normal cases such an environment become abnormal and the gap between the father and his son is enough that no one wants to share his ideas with each other. Such an occasion will encourage both the parties, especially the boys to open up in front of their parents and tell what they need for a better future.
Now looking the National Day from the sons’ perspective. Let’s see how this eventful day will help out the growing future of boys and girls to become a healthy part of society.
Love And Affection:
The Son Day on 28th September is very lethal to create a sense of love and affection for their parents. Such days reminds them that they have someone who is taking care of them. There is someone who loves them from the core of his heart. These thoughts are very good for the future of parents and children. It not only secures the future of the children but when their parents become old, the children will take care of them as they did when their children were in the state of need.
Sense of Protection:
The company of parents is always protecting their children. Whatever the problem will be they will feel secure to discuss it with their parent, and sons always look for their parents to protect them from the harmful effects of the society.
Polish Their Abilities and Grow:
How our children polish their skills and abilities, in fact, JOYCE MAYNARD has drawn a true picture of it. According to him;
“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell me, children, to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” – Joyce Maynard
A strong and friendly relationship between parents and children always them to shine their skills and thus they can prepare in a better way for the future. So the 28th of September is not an event for them but this is a day that will build their career and will help them in becoming a perfect human being in life.
28th September is not a day that is celebrated and then forgotten forever. In fact, this is the day in the history of the USA that brings families together, to connect the heart of the family members. It strengthens the relation between parents and children. It reminds both, parents and children their responsibilities, rights for each other and for the society. This Day reminds that they have children to look after them and reminds the children that have loving and caring parents from whom they mean everything. Sons Day that falls on 28 September every year and National Sons and Daughters Days that fall on 11th August every year is a building block between generations, let these days flourish to make a healthy society.
