About the Holiday

Lancaster, CA resident, Marilyn Dalrymple established Respect for Parents Day in an effort to "make our families become united and strong by recognizing the leadership roles parents have, and to reinstate the respect for parents that was evident in the past". The idea was born from her labors as a parent who faced many serious problems while raising her children, and as the publisher and editor of a newsletter for and by parents of disruptive and addicted adolescents. The day is meant to remind ourselves and our children, especially, that parents deserve and require respect, and to consider the value parents have in our society.
