The internet defines a parent as one that begets or brings forth an offspring. If that is what a parent is, then anyone with a functional reproductive system could be a parent. Most people define parents as being someone who cares for another and protects one from anything that may harm them. Many times, parents do not protect their children, nor are they nice. The worst is when a step-parent tries to take over and the biological parent just lets it happen. I have had a bad step-parent experience. Yelling and screaming were the go-to moves. Now, I have a new step-mom and it is incredible. She does stuff for me like pack my lunch box and I can talk to her about stuff that I cannot just talk to anybody about. I have it lucky. I have always had at least one good parent there for me. Some people are not as lucky. If a parent is abusive or harmful, call 1-800-273-8255 to get help. Finally, a definition of a parent to me is someone that you could tell your deepest, darkest secrets to you and they still love you. Family is love, not blood.
