    Cool parent's home

    Is this sentence correct?

    Joe is a young man who is back parent's home

    Or maybe is better:

    Joe is a young man who is back at his parent's home

    Thank You

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Bushwhacker.

    (1) Please remember that teachers are very strict when it comes to

    writing.

    (a) I think that teachers want you to write:

    parent's home = referring to ONE parent.

    parents' home = referring to BOTH parentS.

    Have a nice day!

    You are right. My fault. I was meaning parents' home indeed.
