Usage Note: The Usage Panel is better disposed to accept the verb parent than in previous surveys, though a majority continues to find it unacceptable. In 1968 it was acceptable to only 19 percent of the Panel; in the most recent survey 45 percent accepted it in the sentence In looking for foster homes, we give preference first to relatives and second to families with prior experience in parenting. The use of the verb parent to mean "act as a parent to" is not entirely new: it occurs as early as 1884 in a metaphorical context. But its use in a literal sense with respect to children is a recent development and reflects a modern reconceptualization of family life. The word is not completely synonymous with the traditional expression raise a child, though the precise nature of the differences may depend on the context. For some speakers, use of the word suggests a self-conscious shift from child to parent as the focus of the parental relationship, and it may be this implication that feeds critical reservations about the verb. But the usage also reflects a widespread practical realization that the activities required of a parent extend well beyond the direct interaction with the child emphasized in child raising. Thus the parenting classes for young parents offered by schools and state agencies encompass not only the activities traditionally associated with raising a child but also topics such as personal self-sufficiency, household financial management, and methods of dealing with schools and health care agencies.
