The Tag.parent property returns the parent for the particular tag.

Examples

Consider the following HTML document:

my_html = """
   <div id="people">
      <div id="profile">
         <p>Alex</p>
      </div>
   </div>
"""
soup = BeautifulSoup(my_html)

To print the parent element of <p>Alex</p>:

p_tag = soup.find("p")
print(p_tag.parent)
<div id="profile"><p>Alex</p></div>

Notice how the parent tag printed includes the child tag <p>Alex</p>.
