This article (parent (5574)) needs attention because:
better def needed
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)
