What is the difference between family and parent?
Could you give me for the example using?
Thanks in advance.
A parent is a father or mother of a member of the family.
As you can see, a family can refer to many generations or just one. If I talk about "my family", am I talking about my wife and children? Or am I talking about ancestors I have traced to 1824? You will not know unless I tell you. You must listen to the context of the conversation.
