National Parents Day - Part 1

Open Ninth - Episode 156

Every July, we honor our parents through the special holiday of National Parents Day. As part of “The Parents’ Day Resolution” passed by Congress in 1994, the fourth Sunday of July is now known as a day of commemoration for our parents, for all their hard work and kindness. In this first part of our two-episode special dedicated to parents, nine of our judges sit down to tell us about their own mothers and fathers, from the heartfelt stories to the important life lessons, and all the memories in-between.
