Like Mothers' and Fathers' Day, Love Our Children Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday of every April to honor children, strengthen families and raise awareness for efforts to protect children.
This day was created to acknowledge the value of children and to educate parents on the importance of giving them love, protection and respect, the three essential elements children need to become strong and successful adults. By promoting healthy and happy children and strengthening families through the support of our nation’s communities, we can keep kids safe and break the cycle of violence.

We urge all parents, families and communities to take time to honor children on this special day! Whether you are a parent or not, children touch your heart in some way. We all have children in our lives, whether it's a son or daughter, relative, friend or neighbor's child. What greater purpose does a person have than to help protect respect, honor and celebrate a child? What is more powerful than the realization that a child needs my love?
Spend the day with the children and teens in your life! Shower them with special attention. Do something special together!
Love Our Children USA believes in reinforcing values of treating children with kindness and respect, nurturing their development, maintaining their self-esteem, creating a safe, non-violent world in which they can live, and reinforcing loving, healthy families to give all children a healthy start. By focusing on the attitudes and behaviors that need to be changed, we can promote healthy and happy children and strengthened families through the support of our nation’s communities.
We celebrate America ’s children now and forever!
Whatever you choose to do with your children on Love Our Children Day, make it a special day! Celebrate together! Children are our treasures!
