In Layout; Motion Options/Parent Item. In Modeler; Layer Settings/Name, Parent. No worries!

Another way to parent things is to use the schematic view... select the 'child' object, and CTRL-Click on the 'parent' object, a line joins the two showing the relationship.
I like to see the way objects are arranged, and this is a lot easier when you have more than a few objects parented to each other

You can also open the classic scene editor and drag 'n drop one item onto another :)
