More About National Single Parent's Day

Single Parents’ Day has quite a long history. It can be traced back to 1984, when Janice Moglen wrote an article with the aim of creating a Single Parent Day, hoping that it would gain the sort of recognition that both Father’s and Mother’s Day do. Janice was determined in her mission and she collaborated with an organization called Parents Without Partners. Together, they started petitioning to have Single Parents’ Day declared by states across the United States. The date that was chosen is significant as well. It coincides with the origins of Parents Without Partners, which was first established on the 21st of March in 1957. Janice, and single parents all over the United States, were delighted when President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5166, which declared the 21st of March, 1984, as Single Parents’ Day. Since then, this date has been embraced across the United States, as well as many other countries around the world.
