I have a server which is a member of the parent domain
I would like to know if I can set up it as DHCP server for all computers in both parent and child domain?
If so, how is this DHCP going to be authorized by the parent or child domain?

Thanks

Yes you can, as long as the server is accessible by clients (IP level). DHCP doesn't need to be authorized by domains, it is before you need any AD information.

I thought it needs to be authorized.
This can prevent rogue DHCP

I was wrong about the authorized part.
Have a look at the following articles.
