“People today are going through multiple relations. Some of them are stable and some of them are not. So you often will find a biological parent that is not interested and seems to step out of the relationship. And then another adult individual living in the same household steps in and does become the “in loco parentis,” in Latin means in place of the parent. These people now are asserting their legal rights. This invites a lot of people to play in this forum.” - Mark Ashton on What is a Parent?
