Kenyans on Monday joined the rest of the world in marking the international day of Families, an event that provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase the knowledge of the social, economic, and demographic processes affecting families.

Labour and Social Protection Cabinet Secretary Florence Bore during the event held at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development unveiled the National Positive Parenting Guidelines, Manual, implementation guide, and 5-year road map that will ensure caregivers have a nurturing relationship with their children.

According to CS Bore, the move is a significant step forward in the promotion and protection of families.

She said families play a critical role in society and the protection of the family unit is important for sustainable living.

Bore observed that physical abuse by parents or caregivers is the most common form of violence against children.

International Day of Families, is an observance that was initiated by the United Nations General Assembly (UN-GA) in 1993. The first celebration of the day took place in 1994.

The United Nations declared that the purpose of establishing this day about families was to promote awareness of the issues that surround families, as well as to increase the knowledge of the processes that affect families, including social, demographic, and economic factors.
