airplanes are the general term for flying fixed-wing vehicles. jets are a more specific kind of airplane.

Airplanes have different type of motors - that propel them though the sky. A long time ago, they were just automobile engines with a propeller, then the designers started using a "jet engine" which uses very hot air to push the airplane. Most Big commercial Airplanes use the Jet engine, but a lot of little airplanes use the propeller motor - like a piper airplane. So today, we do have both types of engines on airplanes. So your parents are both right.

all jets are airplanes
not all airplanes are jets (some are propeller-driven)
