    The plural form of "parents"?

    Could you please let me know the plural form of "parents"? Such as if I want to talk about more than one parents like as "Many parents (or ?) ..."
    Thank you so much!

    Re: What are you up to?

    'Parents' is plural.

    Some children have only one parent.

    I am going to visit my parents this evening

    I have met the parents of most of the children in my class
    .

    Many parents worry too much about their children.

    Please give your threads a more helpful title.

    I have just learned that "parent" is "dad or mum" but "parents" is "dad and mum", isn't it?
    I should have solved this myself using a dictionary. Thank you!
