“In Loco Parentis” is a phrase which here means "acting in the role of a parent" and is used many times throughout A Series of Unfortunate Events.
|“||Are you familiar with the Latin term 'in loco parentis?'...'In loco parentis' means 'acting in the role of a parent'. It is a legal term and it applies to Count Olaf. Now that you are in his care, the Count may raise you using any methods he sees fit.||”|
— Mr. Poe, to the Baudelaires
