This is the most basic thing you must understand in order to script. If you have ever looked at a script, you may have seen something like this

Code:
script.Parent.Parent
You may be wondering what this means. Well this is referring to the object that is

To finish that tutorial off xD...

The parent is the object that the script is inside of. If you look in the Explorer (Tools>View>Explorer), you will see lists of objects, each nested in one-another. These are the parents adn children. So, let's say you game a script in a model. The model is named Model and the script needs to change a part in the model. Instead of doing
Code:
game.Workspace.Model.Part...
You can do this
Code:
script.Parent.Part....
See how simple it is? Also, when you set the parent, you need an extra .Parent. So, let us say you want to move the Model to game.Lighting, instead of just
Code:
script.Parent = game.Lighting
You need to use
Code:
script.Parent.Parent = game.Lighting
This is due to the fact that, in the first example, you set the parent of the script. You were telling the script to do 'Change parent of script to Lighting', instead of 'Change the parent of the ancestor of the script to Lighting' which you did in the second example. (Does that make sence?)
