Siblings Day (sometimes called National Siblings Day) is an American celebration held annually on April 10 to honor the relationships of siblings. Unlike Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, it is not federally recognized, although this is the stated goal of the Siblings Day Foundation.
Siblings Day follows the spirit of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day – a great American tradition and celebration of family-unit values. It is an uplifting celebration honoring people who have shaped our values, beliefs and ideals, the foundation says on its website. It is a relationship as equally important as a parent’s relationship. Siblings are the reason we celebrate Mother’s and Father’s Day. Some ways to celebrate are:
Getting a children’s medical ID for each child in your family can keep the child with a medical condition or allergy from feeling alienated by their condition. It also helps the child without a medical concern to feel like they are special too and being treated equally. If your child does not have a medical condition or allergy, a children’s medical ID that simply has their name on it along with emergency contact phone numbers is a great idea. Even kids who know their parent’s phone number well might have trouble communicating it in an emergency or if they are in shock. Medical IDs are usually worn as a bracelet or a necklace. Traditional medical ID bracelets are etched with basic, key health information about the person, and some medical IDs now include MyIHR compatibility that can carry a person’s full medical record. Emergency medical personnel are trained to look for a medical ID, so it will be seen when it is needed.
