The Maryland Week of the Working Parent was designed by the Maryland Committee for Children in 1990 to highlight the contributions of parents to the workforce and the economy. The celebration underscores the importance and availability of quality child care, offers employers and employees practical approaches to addressing family needs and raises funds.

The designation "working parent" includes parents who work inside and outside of the home. All parents contribute to the local and regional economy in the difficult and demanding work of child-rearing, as well as through membership in the general workforce.
