I have two related lists (parent-child relationship) in my SharePoint 2013 site.

The child list contains a lookup column containing the unique titles that exist in the parent list. I have added the related child list as a web part to the parent list's default display form. When a parent item is opened, the child items are filtered accordingly.

My question:

Is there a way that I can allow the summary toolbar on the child web part so when a user clicks on the "add new item" link, the parent title is passed to the child's New Item form so I can automatically set the lookup drop down box to the proper selection?

Per my knowledge, that will be hard to accomplish your goal. We cannot directly get the parent list value and send to the new item form window.
