Father's Day & Grad Issue
For the June 2022 cover, we focus on Father's Day - a holiday of honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. Father's Day is observed on the third Sunday of June. It honors all fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, and father figures for their contributions. I was always blessed to have so many family members from tias to tios (aunts and uncles), my grandparents, primos and primas (cousins) who supplemented the efforts of my parents and loved me. Children with involved, caring parents, especially fathers have better educational outcomes. A number of studies suggest that fathers who are involved, nurturing, and playful with their infants have children with higher IQs, as well as better linguistic and cognitive capacities. That said, let's love our babies! More so, let's value the role of fathers. Feliz Día de Los Padres - Happy Father's Day!"
We hope that you will read the great stories as well as utilize all the info in the June issue.
Continued blessings to you and your family! ¡Bendiciones continuas para usted y su familia!
