The file includes two fields Parent and Child

It can show list of children, add new child or attach existing child. It created dual relationship. It support filtering. It means you can see all parents with particular child. In real world for example all Movies of particular Actor.

Although actually child mast has only one parent, we made it so you can set multiple parents for children, thus create many-to-many relationship. Real example MovieActor. Actor may be related to many movies and moves may be related to may actors although it is obvious that movie is a parent and actor is a child.
