    Parent tasks are formally known as summary tasks, and they provide logical organization to the tasks in the project.  Child tasks are formally known as subtasks, and are indented below summary tasks.
     
    You link tasks using task dependencies to tell Microsoft Project the sequence in which the tasks will occur.  Hope this helps.
