Basically Parent bot is what you build ideally to hold just the high level flow and trigger points.

Each trigger point is a child task, there can be sub child tasks as well.

Example

 

Parent Task - Initiate variables, *Call Open Webpage task , Return Pass or Fail , If Fail do something , else do something , *Call Database task ..

 

* marked becomes your Child Tasks

 

There is no set rule, but they correlate like connected with wires(in form of variables)

Parent task can have a variable for URL which is passed to child task , means child task must have that URL variable too - This is correlation.
