On This Day: Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

Absolutely Incredible Kid DayBust out the superhero outfit and be ready to prepare their favorite meal – March 17th is Absolutely Incredible Kid Day.  Recognize your own child or someone else’s, but take a moment to tell a child how important they are to you.  The holiday is often recognized by writing a note to kids letting them know how special they are.  The note can then be held as a keepsake.  So go ahead – tell a kid how incredible they are!

    don’t use some ridiculous excuse like a dedicated, made-up-by-SAHMs day to tell your kids they’re awesome. they should know it already because of how you treat them every day.

      We couldn’t agree more – but it does’t hurt to serve as a reminder. For every child that is told they’re awesome every day, there is likely a child out there whose parents forgot to give them breakfast or has never been tucked into bed. Some of the staff here at DCP have spouses and family members that work in education and the stories you hear are ridiculous and often tragic. Great point through Jenna. Thanks for the insight!
