Why is it important to let your parents know where you are?

Because they love you and care for you and want to know that you are safe. Because they will go crazy if you go somewhere without telling them and they'll think you're lost.if they find you they might ground you for not telling them where you went and alerting them for nothing. My 21 yr old step son moved out the summer after he graduated & didn't say where he was going. There was a death in the family & it was very hard to try & find out where he was. Then my 18 yr old step son partied for 4 to 5 days in a row - we didn't know where he was. My husband (his father) allowed it. But we would have never known where he was if another death in the family happened again. My husband & I always knows where the other one is. Cell phones help a lot.
