Different Player postion "coordinates" in Player scene and Main scene

On instancing the 2Dplayer script in player scene, the player coordinates match with screen coordinates ,but when instanced as a child node in the main scene, it shows completely different player position coordinates. .Also,tried converting the player postion to global,but the issue still exists.
How to resolve this?

    if velocity.length() > 0:
        velocity = velocity.normalized() * speed 
    position += velocity * _delta
    #position = to_global(position)
    position.x = clamp(position.x, 0, screen_size.x - sprite_x) 
    position.y = clamp(position.y, 0, screen_size.y - sprite_y)     
    print("Player position = (",position.x,",",position.y,")")

    $screenPos.text = str("Screen_size = (",screen_size.x," , ",screen_size.y,")")

The position will be relative to the parent node.

try this: get_parent().add_child(node)
