Octopus parents that continue living?

Are there any species of octopus where the mother and/or father remain alive after the birth of the offspring, and do they transfer their knowledge to the offspring? If no, have their ever been observed abnormalities where this happened?

Best answer: Yes, although I think only one species that’s been observed to be the exception to the usual rule: the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus.
