    And the parents would have done as requested? I doubt that very much. Chinese whispers.

    I suspect I would have texted or emailed rather than ringed but agree with a lot of others that I would contact home. If I wasn't in a position to do this myself I'd ask my home contact to do it - generally I use someone who has access to my OSM account. I think this keeps the parents informed but does not cause undue worry. It also is more time effective as it means that the same message can be sent out to everyone. That said I'm fairly certain most of the parents of the children I look after wouldn't be worried if I didn't contact them in similar circumstances. They know that I (and my other leaders) have the best interests of their children at heart and will go the extra mile to ensure that they are safe and well cared for.
