First Monday of December is Mother's Day and Father's Day Proclamation No. 58
In the Philippines to honor both two important people in our life we celebrate it together by the Proclamation No. 58, s.1998 signed and proclaimed by our Former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada.
A holiday that recognizes the works of both parents concerns the uplifting and supporting in the rearing of the children. In respect with partners who are separated, this holiday should be given much emphasized the parental roles, an observance more consistent of minimizing traditional sex-biased and differences of both characters.
Regardless of whether you were married or in common-law relationship... married or not, if you have children to care it is your obligation to support your children financially and emotionally.
That is the essence of a MOTHER and a FATHER.
