I can imagine a child running around all alone in an amusement park with cotton candy in their hands

The have a grandma who occasionally drops in. They're fine.

Depending on the context, couldn't this be understood to mean "where are YOUR parents" "where are THEIR parents" or "where are OUR parents", vero? Grazie!

I think it's just a general "Where are the parents in all of this?", like if you saw a kid misbehaving in public or something.

I tried where are your parents but it was marked wrong. In other contexts Italian seems to translate the something as your so why not here

Does "padri" work, or it parents always "genitori"

Padri si fathers(?), genitori is the right meant of parents
