How to use parent in a sentence?

  4. Harley LeBon:

    It is puzzling to me as to why Maryland Child Protective Services continues to accuse these parents of being negligent under a law which seemingly applies to children being left alone in buildings or cars, now it appears Child Protective Services have stretched the law to apply to walking home from a school and to a playground ? I guess the question to consider is,' Is Child Protective Services the state's job to determine whether our children are independent enough to walk to and from the playground or is it the parent's decision ?'.

  5. Ho Sau Mei:

    Kam Fat Mahjong shop contains my childhood memories -- I grew up here, my parent raised me to do this job, so I have a very strong connection with mahjong.
