National parenting expert wants Mother's Day canceled

Filed under: Just For Moms, Media

(From crazedparent) National parenting expert Hal Runkel, LMFT, author and creator of the award-winning and best-selling Scream Free Parenting Program says "there should be no such thing as mother's day".

"While it sounds great to have a day when we recognize and appreciate our moms who do so much in our families, what about the other 364 days?" he adds, saying that every day is Mother's Day, each day is a special gift and that we all should be the best we can be and make the best of every day.

I must admit that I understand his point, I feel the same way about International Women's Day. Recognition should not be a one-day exclusivity. Yet I don't think there's something wrong with having a special day to celebrate mothers. Actually, it's one of my favorite days of the year and I can't wait to see what my little boys have made for me!

What do you think? Do you want Mother's Day canceled?
