Can someone explain the concept of "In loco parentis".?

"In loco parentis" means in the place of a parent or instead of a parent. It means a person who has been treated as a parent by the child and who has formed a meaningful parental relationship with the child for a substantial period of time.

For example: A teacher is in loco parentis and, while a child is in his care, some of the privileges of the natural parent are transferred to him in order that he may carry out his duties . In return, the teacher must assume certain responsibilities and must recognize that these obligations, partly legal and partly moral, rest upon him in every aspect of his work.
it means in the place of a parent.
a person/insititution assuming duties/responsibilities for a minor.
