Although very few people are aware of it, March is National Parenting Awareness Month. The goal of this campaign is to help the public better understand the role that parents play in the growth and development of their children.

Parenting is hard. It’s very easy to get caught up in the everyday hustle and bustle of life, but sometimes we need to take a step back and focus on the bigger picture: are we fulfilling our duties as parents? No matter what stage of parenting you’re in, children’s needs are constantly changing. The National Parenting Awareness campaign aims to help parents work through those changes and reminds them that their role in the lives of their children is vital.
