Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

static member GetParent : 
        current:DependencyObject -> DependencyObject

Parameters

current
Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The object to find the parent object for. This is expected to be either a FrameworkElement or a FrameworkContentElement.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The requested parent object.

This method is merely a wrapper that gets the appropriate type version (FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement) of the FrameworkElement.Parent or FrameworkContentElement.Parent property; so unless you are unable to determine the current type, you might want to check the respective instance properties instead.
