It is also very important for the child to tell the parents where they are going and with whom, especially when they come in contact with strangers. For example, when children are required to take a car at hitchhiking, taxi or car sharing (Uber, Bolt, Yango), it would be ideal to notify their parents by SMS or phone, car number, color and destination to which they are heading. .
