Child class: A class that inherits from another class, called the "parent class". This terminology is limited; prefer "derived" in C++.

Friend class: A class that is permitted to access another class'' private members. There are a couple of things that this is useful for, namely overloading stream operators and defining conversion constructors, but in general should be avoided like the GOTO.

Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.
