Preschool: Chalice Children Session 37: Mothers and Fathers We’ll celebrate Mothers and Fathers today, as well as all those who care for the children, with flowers. We are sensitive to the fact that not all children live with their parent(s) and there are many different types of families, all based on love. We recognize that some families have a single parent, a step-parent, same-sex parents, and more—just to name a few of the beautiful diversities called family. Our message to the children on this day will be that there are lots of different kinds of families and they are based on love.
