You can to correct the parent-child relationship, by going to the Family Members section, and clicking on the Edit button right of your name listed as a child, and Remove/Replace your listed parents.

- If the Details section is not open, click the Details tab.

- Under Parents and Siblings, find the child's name, and click the Edit icon .

Hope the article suggested in the last posting fully answered your question.
This issue often generates questions, and these may have been answered previously. Just a tip to save you some time......before posting a question, it may be helpful to you to check if this topic has been addressed previously - You can add keywords (in this case 'wrong person' or 'remove incorrect relationship' ) to the search bar, and other similarly themed questions will appear and may provide you with a quicker answer.
Hope this helps.0
