As we said parents can be both biological or who have legal duties towards the adopted kid. A biological father or mother is whose gametes result in a child, one through a male sperm and the other through the female ovum (egg). The biological parents are the first-degree relatives and 50% are genetically inherited. A woman can also become a mother through surrogacy.

And some parents may be the adoptive parents. A legal parent is the one who has an obligation towards their child, which can be biological or not. This parent provides for economically and emotionally their children, they are legally responsible for them without any exceptions. If a child lives with two parents under the same roof then all of them are considered as parents regardless of biologically they are related to each other.

Though the most common types of parents can be father, mother, step-father or mother or grandparents. A parent can also be extended to one generation to the deleted ancestors. Examples of third biological parents are when someone had a baby with sperm or eggs from another person. A parental relationship is the legal, social, or moral parameter for parenthood.

The term may refer to parentage, or it may refer to adult guardianship of minors. In contemporary society today, family law governs most issues of parenting across jurisdictions. There are many roles that can be played by persons in a child’s life. Usually, these persons have a duty to provide care, guidance, and education to a child, with this duty increasing as children get older. A parent is someone who has such duties in relation to their offspring; the extent of these obligations vary from culture to culture.
