A parent is a caregiver of the offspring in their own species. In humans, a parent is the caretaker of a child (where "child" refers to offspring, not necessarily age). A biological parent is a person whose gamete resulted in a child, a male through the sperm, and a female through the ovum. Parents are first-degree relatives and have 50% genetic meet. A female can also become a parent through surrogacy. Some parents may be adoptive parents, who nurture and raise an offspring, but are not actually biologically related to the child. Orphans without adoptive parents can be raised by their grandparents or other family members.

Greatest Parent Ever!!

I always bother my dad with this question. Am I the best son ever? he always refer me to my mom or grandfather. And when I ask them they send me back to my dad and I would just guess and go with it. But the point was they wanted me to decide it for myself. They want me to believe and know that I am the greatest son they have. That is how special parents are. They are special by showing the right path for their children to learn and grow into people who one day won't need their parent's guidance again.
