If setup correctly SOS will send your approximate location to the mobile phone of a chosen contact. The SOS can also automatically send a photo taken at that time, a 5-second audio recording and make a call automatically.

Make sure you have this setting turned on on your own and your kids iPhones and know how to use it.
