How to use parent in a sentence?

  1. Darby Saxbe:

    Part of becoming a parent is about becoming hypervigilant to potential threats. You become a threat detection machine.

  2. Kevin Watkins:

    If you're a parent faced with a choice of giving your children a square meal at the end of the day, or paying for the transport ... to send them to school ... you're likely to make a choice in favor of adequate nutrition.

  3. Nicholas Poehl:

    I think every parent probably instinctively knows they don't know everything about their kids, but when you find out something like this... it's extremely hard, these people are victims too. They didn't know, they didn't expect and they surely didn't predict it. So prayers to everyone in this whole mess.

  4. Joe Lewis:

    It brings awareness to the fact that there are thousands of children of our fallen that are out there trying to go through their childhood, the most crucial, formattable years without the support or guidance of their parent, it’s really important that as a nation we help those children mitigate the risks they face of increased anxiety, depressions, substance abuse, dropping out of school and even suicide.

  5. Teresa Senserrick:

    I say the same, for example, in my work with young drivers – you don’t want to jump in a car immediately after a break up with your girlfriend/boyfriend or a fight with a best friend or parent, for example, a lot of things can impact on where our ‘headspace’ is when we are driving and we can’t always avoid this, but we can try to be mindful that we might not be in the best state to drive and purposefully draw our attention away from distracting thoughts and influences to concentrating on the immediate traffic environment.
