Is a Bris more about Gods covenant with the parent or the son?

I was reading the Bible when I came across this section in Genesis 17

“And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.”

This line kind of confused me because jewish boys are circumcised at 8 days by their parents, not by themselves. Does a Bris signify a parents dedication to following gods will or the sons dedication to follow gods will?
