Ethnicity in child missing from parent

Classification: Query
I'm hoping someone can explain this or direct me to an article that can explain it in not-too-scientific terms.
I have a small percentage of an ethnicity that doesn't show up in either of my parents results. They both show as a parent/child/immediate family relationship so there's no drama there ;-) And you'll see that everything else makes sense.

Dad's results
72% Scandinavian
19% British Isles
9% Unknown

Mom's results
39% Native North American
19% Native South American
12% Southern European
9% British Isles
6% Eastern European
15% Unknown

My results
40% Scandinavian
19% Native North American
18% British Isles
8% Native South American
6% Persian/Turkish/Caucasus <<<<<<<
9% Unknown

I'd appreciate any insight you all could give. Thanks!
