Get All Parent objects.

for(Schema.SobjectField strFld: Account.SobjectType.getDescribe().fields.getMap().Values())
    if(strFld.getDescribe().getType() == Schema.DisplayType.REFERENCE)
        system.debug('==parent object='+strFld.getDescribe().getReferenceTo());

Get All Child objects.

Schema.DescribeSObjectResult R = Account.SObjectType.getDescribe();
for (Schema.ChildRelationship cr: R.getChildRelationships()) 
  system.debug('====child object==='+cr.getChildSObject());

Note: Based on your requirement just use your object API Name instead Account.
