I had the same issue with this word and I rememeber finding it and wtiting it somewhere but sadly it is nowhere to be found. Anyway, the word can be literally translated as "contain". I have spent last night trying to find it again but I failed, the closest I got was embrace or encompass.

The context I am looking for is something along the lines of, 'a good parent knows how to contain his son with love, compassion and understanding' In addition to contain, what other words could convey a similar meaning when used in this context?

The verb surround is often used in the way you're looking for, "to surround someone with love", and it is a synonym of contain and encompass.

I would say "imbue." It means "to make someone have a particular feeling."

"A good parent knows how to imbue his son with love, compassion and understanding."
