comment Does a child own what he's implicitly given by his parents?
Can we clarify the question as to whether we are talking about a katan or not? If we aren't talking about ketanim can you clarify why the parent child relationship would be different than any other relationships vis-a-vis kinyanim?

comment Why is Avraham's monotheism not mentioned in the torah?
I think that this question should be amended to something like, "Why aren't we expressly introduced to Avraham in the text of the Torah? Why do the psukim tell us so little about why God chose him, etc.?" I think that is a great question...and I think that is the core of this question...

@IsaacMoses or other moderators, should the above comment be posted as an answer? It doesn't answer the question, but undermines it...

comment Why is Avraham's monotheism not mentioned in the torah?
Abraham's famous achievement was not the discovery of a single God. Adam, Noah and others certainly already knew of the unity of God. In fact, during Abraham's and his children's lifetime Shem and Ever had a "Yeshiva" (whatever that means) which was dedicated to the service and study of the single God. His achievement was a practical and ethical monotheism which professed the idea that one could be a spiritual individual while also engaging in the physical world and which obligates an adherent to a certain lifestyle of ethics.

I updated the answer to better address what I think you are asking. If you are looking for something different please clarify. I will add, that I think that a thorough treatment of the broader international observances in remembrance of the Holocaust may be beyond the scope of this particular site.
