In fact, Marilyn Dalrymple from Lancaster, CA created Respect For Parents Day.3

“I have no hidden agenda behind my quest for such a day. The idea was born from my labors as a parent who faced many serious problems while raising my three children. As the publisher and editor of a newsletter for and by parents of disruptive and addicted adolescents for five years, I know I was not alone with my struggles.” Marilyn Dalrymple2

Respect for Parents Day is designated as one for children and society to begin to again recognize the leadership roles parents have and to reinstate the respect for parents that was evident in the past. The common goal is the increased well-being of parents, youth and children.1

Respect for Parents Day is set as a reminder that parents deserve and require respect.

When your children were young, you were their hero. They wanted to be just like you and watched your every move. Now, as they grow older, you are lucky if they answer your question in a complete sentence without using a snarky tone. Tweens and teens seem to hit a phase where all respect for their parents goes out the window.4
