Building harmonious families for children by discovering the multirole of Moms.
Children take center stage on Children's Day and also in the family. But to build a harmonious and loving family environment that is so important for children’s growth, MOM is a protagonist we cannot ignore.
In reality, mothers remain the caregiver that many expectations have been placed on. Their sacrifices for their children and families are often not wholly recognized. Yet, when children show any signs of behavioral digression, mothers are usually the first to come under the “parenting” microscope. Their personal health, pressures of family life, and powerlessness while parenting is often overlooked. They play an integral role in children's growth. Still, they also need the understanding and support from people around them.
The Law of the People's Republic of China on Family Education Promotion, implemented on January 1, 2022, aims to establish a family education service system that can better assist and help parents in their parenting journey. This Children's Day, join World Vision to delve into the topic of a mother's physical and mental well-being and help build stronger parent-child ties. By encouraging families and society to understand and support the many roles of "being a mother," we can enable more children to thrive in harmonious family settings.
From May 30 to June 1, World Vision and our corporate partners – IKEA Tianhe Store, Melissa & Doug, and famous artist Mr. Lin Xuhui- are launching the #MoreThanJustAMom# campaign. We will be releasing "Listen to Mom's Story" videos, "My Mother, My Home" parent-child online painting exhibition, and "Mom's Tips" interactive game, all centered on the importance of a mother's well-being, health, and personal needs that enables her to nurture the growth of her children.
The "Listen to Mom's Story" tells about the confidence, integrity, and strength of three modern mothers and the multirole they play. In addition to the above business partners, KFC Guangzhou will also join and support an online exhibition of the many creative artworks received through the "My Mother My Home" parent-child painting activity, created around heartwarming or courageous moments of mothers.
