A rhombus is a square turned at an angle so that the corners are facing north, south, east, and west.

Really? That's still a square, simply rotated by 45º. A rhombus is a type of parallelogram.

The definition of a square: Two sets of parrallell sides and four right angles. A rhombus doesn't have right angles. That is one of the biggest things you need for a square

Because the definition of a square is having four congruent sides and angles and a rhombus has four congruent sides.

Do parallelograms have parallel sides?

Yes. A Parallelogram is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides which are opposite each other and of equal length, though the pairs may be of different length to each other. If the angles are all 90° then the parallelogram is also a rectangle. If the angles are all 90° AND all sides are equal then the parallelogram is also a square. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares; Similarly all squares are rhombuses but not all rhombuses are squares And all rhombuses, and thus squares, are parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are rhombuses (nor squares).
