Celebrating Father's Day

image in article Celebrating Father's DayFather’s Day is that one special day every year to celebrate the fathers. However, it can look different for everyone. Consider the children in your class and if they do not have a father, encourage them to think about an important male figure in their life. This could be a step-father, brother, uncle, or family friend This creates a more inclusive celebration for children. Inclusive celebrations provide an opportunity to discuss and acknowledge the many kinds of families in our communities and the many caregivers in a child’s life. In addition to heterosexual two-parent households, some children live in homes with a single parent, grandparent or other family guardians, same-sex parents, adoptive or foster parents, or stepparents. If you have children in your classroom who do not have a father in their lives, keep the message about appreciating those adults who help and support us each day.
