Holding company vs parent company

ok before i get any mean replies let me explain that this is only my second week in the job.

last week i was on audit at a clients and wanted to know the difference between a parent company and a holding company but no one in our office can tell me

can someone point me in the right direction please?

also does a parent or holding company have to hold shares in its associated companies?
