The parents? Is this a test? If you want to ask a question, you have to give enough facts from the individual context out of which the question arises.

If you are married, neither party has a superior right to the care, custody and control of the child until such time as the court determines the same. If you are not married and the child was born out of wedlock, custody is with the mother until further order of the court per statute on that subject. However, even though that statute exists, it is often not enforced by law enforcement on the street. Consult with an experienced family law attorney if you have more questions.
