When using the parents in a sentence and referring to both of them, is the ‘ put before or after the s. For example I see you are selling your parents’ home.
or fill in the name and email fields below:
If you were to say "selling your parent's home", I would assume you meant one parent. Therefore "parents' home" seems more correct in that situation.
I agree. Well and briefly put.
Chad covered most of the bases, but I have one more point.
"Parent" can refer to "one parent or the other," as in "Disciplining the child is the parent's perogative." This just means "either parent" -- one or the other -- any person who can be referred to as a "parent."
I agree. parent = one parentparents = two parents
parent's home is the home of one parentparents' home is the home of both parents
