What is Parents Day?

Parents Day has officially been a national holiday since 1994, and is all about family (no matter what faith or background you come from). You can even nominate your parents to win Parents of the Year! Parents Day is meant to show your appreciation for your parents and all the hard work they do in your family and in your community.

Many communities celebrate Parents Day already, organizing events for the town that are centered around family activities, but if your town doesn’t you can try organizing your own Parents Day celebration at home and show your parents how much you care - and with the nice weather, you can do lots of things outdoors!

  • Go on a family hike
  • Organize a picnic for your parents
  • Have a family game night
  • Make dinner for your parents
  • Take your parents to the beach
  • Surprise them by doing chores
  • Plan a family movie night and pick one your parents’ faves!
  • Make a redeemable chore “booklet” your parents can cash in when they’re feeling stressed
  • Does your parent have a special hobby? Make Parents Day the day you join them, whether it’s collecting stamps or learning carpentry!
  • Make a card
  • Bake them cookies
  • Clean your room (this is really a gift for both of you!)
  • Take them out to dinner
  • Plan a surprise party for them!

Do You Get Along With Your Parents?

  • Yeah, most of the time.
  • My parents don't get me - we never get along.

Well, they should because of the community, in my opinion. Even though this site is "meant for kids", almost everyone I've met is very mature and friendly. Bullies and trolls are very rare, and there are lots of things to do with lots of people.

"According to the famous theory in quantum mechanics, 'The universe doesn't exist if we stop looking at it,' which argues that a particle's past behavior changes based on what we see. Last year, scientists performed a new experiment proving this theory to be true on the scale of atoms.   'The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured.'   According to the rules of quantum mechanics, the boundary between the 'world out there' and our own subjective consciousness are blurred. When physicists look at atoms or particles of light, what they see depends on how they have set up their experiment. To test this, physicists at the Australian National University recently conducted what is known as the John Wheeler's delayed-choice thought experiment. The experiment involves a moving object that is given the choice to act like a particle or a wave. Wheeler's experiment then asks - at which point does the object decide? Common sense says the object is either wave-like or particle-like, independent of how we measure it. But quantum physics predicts that whether you observe wave like behavior or particle behavior depends only on how it is actually measured at the end of its journey. 'It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,' said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott. Despite the apparent weirdness, the results confirm the validity of quantum theory. Quantum theory governs the world of the very small, and has enabled the development of many technologies such as LEDs, lasers and computer chips. The ĀNU reversed Wheeler's original concept of light beams being bounced by mirrors, and instead used atoms scattered by laser light."
