Examples of parents in a Sentence

  1. Brian Lee:

  3. Tyra Bryant-Stephens:

    Parents who are living really stressful lives can't stop what they're doing to take care of that one item, necessarily, so if you have a child who seems to be OK, doesn't have symptoms right then, you may delay that just because of all the other competing priorities.

We’ve got black nephews, uncles. Black parents and black grandparents. We deal with them every single day. We deal with the struggle every single day. And people don’t have to get on board with what we’re doing based on a press release. But when they’re writing about us, and commenting about us, they should be mindful of the fact that there are no sell-outs involved in this show.

  5. Ian Paul:
