Unlike a parent, the parnet is one who uses their child (once they become the age to get a job, 16 and older) to pay the bills and take care of them until they die. The child of the parnet usually is trapped at the parents side for fear of being cast out of the family or other things. The term Parnet, Par referring to parent and net referring to a trap. The children are also known to be under complete control of the parnet in the work place, in their own private time and in their social lives.
