This article (parent (5574)) needs attention because:
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.
This definition, "A person with one or more children." is vague and does not distinguish from a person standing next to a child that is not his/hers. Better defs: "A person who is the caretaker of a child" (for the general sense), "the male who sired or the female who gave birth to a child" (biological parent sense). "The child of a father and mother" would also do, but then the definition of "father" would have to be changed from "a male parent" to resolve circularity issues. --InfoCan 14:48, 23 March 2012 (CET) "nearest ancestors of a child" ? --InfoCan 16:48, 23 March 2012 (CET)
- Do we mean only the biological parent here, or the more general meaning (including foster parents)?
- For a biological parent: "A person having one or more descendants / offsprings"?
- For a parent in general "A person who is the caretaker of a child" - yes.
- Do we need 2 DMs ? there are 2 in Wiktionary. --Kip 20:59, 29 March 2012 (CEST)
- Done as you suggested. --InfoCan 17:28, 30 March 2012 (CEST)
