How to visit your parents in Starfield
To visit your parents in Starfield, you will need to complete The Old Neighbourhood and One Small Step quests, and then head to their apartment at Pioneer Tower in the city of New Atlantis.
Once the missions mentioned above are finished, you will get an Activity notification asking you to meet them. This will mark the location on the map making it easy to find, but if you need specific directions, you can find Pioneer Tower in the Residential District of New Atlantis.
Ignoring this notification will cause your parents to send a concerned note to Constellation, and they will eventually visit their HQ to find you - so there's no avoiding them really.
Once you do visit them, you will start to see the bonuses of the Starfield Kid Stuff trait. Firstly, you can get an item called the High School Backpack which gives you extra carrying capacity, and your father will teach you Grandma's Meatloaf recipe to make at cooking stations.
As you continue to visit them, they will surprise you with gifts, such as new gear to use on your journey, and you can even run into them when adventuring in certain places.
