When I am trying to post a journal stock entry where in debit account  is in chart of accounts it means it has a parent and credit account has no parent, as i wanted to calculate the total entry transaction done on the given inventory credit account..

At the time of posting entry I am getting this error


You cannot validate this journal entry because account "Account XXXXXX" does not belong to chart of accounts "IAccount YYYY"


Is there a way I can post journal entries to a account without having any parent

You should set as parent the root account from your account list ( probably it's the one with code 0 ). It's just a technical purpose parent, and  in terms of accounting you're making an account with no parent  by setting the root account as parent, so it'll displayed as top level account in the chart of accounts(i.e. with no parent). For correctly identify which is a root account, you can see what is the parent for any account with "no parent" in your chart of accounts.
