In a family, a parent was the caregiver responsible for providing parenting to an offspring. (VOY: "Q2", et al.) Thought often used to describe people in general, the colloquial term folks was often used to described ones parents. (ENT: "Fight or Flight", et al.)

Ideally, the parents were those responsible for the conception and birth of the child, but in circumstances of adoption or fosterage, the adoptive or foster parents may be either related or unrelated individuals, who would raise the child as their own. (TNG: "Heart of Glory"; DS9: "Cardassians", "The Sword of Kahless", "Sons and Daughters")
