Parens patriae stands for "parent of the nation." It means the power of the country to intervene against an abusive or negligent parent, guardian or informal caretaker, and to act as the parent of any child or individual who is in need of protection. For example, some children, incapacitated individuals, and disabled individuals lack parents who are able and willing to render adequate care, thus requiring state intervention.
