Family is one of nature's greatest masterpieces in which its members are to be intimately acquainted without having a proper introduction to each other. The bond is just embroidered naturally from the first day of our lives when warm hands embrace our bodies and hearty smiles comfort our cries. The closest family to us is our parents who are the only ones obligated to adore us; compared to the rest of the world whose affection needs to be earned.
To acknowledge the significance of family, 15th May has been specially observed as the International Day of Families. This day aims to promote awareness of issues relating to families. This year’s theme, Advancing Social Integration and Intergenerational Solidarity, realizes the fact that in every family consists of members who come from different generations thus challenges of having a fruitful intergenerational relationship are encountered.
