Question about filters

Say I have a parent item named “Parent” with several children. I want to create a filter for the word “Parent” so I can get to it easily. When I go to the filter, I will see “Parent” but with no access to the children in the filter view. Is that how it’s designed to work, and is there any alternative way to have access to all those items in the filter view?

That is indeed how it’s designed to work.

To get access to the children, select the row “Parent,” and then stop the filter. It should return to the unfiltered outline, with that row selected — and you’ll have access to its children
