World Family Day is a special date on a global level, and although it is not a highly recognized holiday -among others of greater importance-, its relevance must be understood by one issue: the role of social learning in the family, as well as the development of the personality as a responsible individual in today's society.
In these times where violence has become a common denominator in all latitudes of the planet, emotional ties in the family are a model to follow for new generations and to gradually break with problems such as domestic violence among other types of interpersonal dysfunctions.
The conception of this celebration dates back to 1994, when the General Assembly of the United Nations stipulated that the importance of the family in contemporary society should be exalted every May 15. All this in order to promote social well-being and reflection around members of a family, or even our own community. Fairness, respect and tolerance are recurring elements within this scheme.
More than a holiday moved by a mere commercial sense, its main mission is to help the development of the family bond as a cultural paradigm in an age that is evolving by leaps and bounds.
