    A parent is either father or mother...
    Family is not only parents but also brothers and sisters and even uncles, aunts, grangfathers and grandmothers can be members of the family....

    A family is an assortment of people who are related by blood (father, son, grandmother, etc.) or marriage (husband, wife, sister-in-law, etc.) As you can see, a family can include many generations or only one.

    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.
