I created a new window (Project->Add WPf Window)
I can't see it on page 2 (as a parent)

is displayed, but not where I would like it 

in C# it's easy to create Parent, in Wpf I don't understand which one to use between Owner, Parent, Child

What I have tried:

<Window x:Class="WpfApp1.MainWindow"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="450" Width="800">
    <DockPanel HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="411" LastChildFill="False" Margin="0,0,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="782" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" Cursor="Hand" Background="#FF230FE6">
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" DockPanel.Dock="Bottom" Margin="2,5" Background="#FFAE2608" Height="36">
            <Button Name="btnPreviousTab" Width="70">Prev.</Button>
            <Button Name="btnNextTab" Width="70">Next</Button>
            <Button Name="btnSelectedTab" Width="70">Selected</Button>
        <TabControl Name="tcSample" Width="735">
            <TabItem x:Name="Pagina1" Header="General">
                <Label Content="Test here..." />
            <TabItem x:Name="Pagina2" Header="Security" />
            <TabItem x:Name="Pagina3" Header="Details" />

private void btnSelectedTab_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            Window oWindow = new Window1();
            Pagina2.Content = oWindow.Content;

The "reference" assignment has nothing to do where the Window shows up; "windows" are "containers" that are NOT otherwise contained.

If you're thinking "MDI", that only applies to Windows Forms.
