Translation:I would get in touch with my parents.
So if you're 'getting in touch with something,' would it always be phrased 'sich bei etwas melden'?
I'm not sure if always, but it is an extremely common phrase. It is used both casually and in more formal situations.
Interesting, to me 'getting in touch with something' feels more being not about these abstract notions
Oh. I didn't even notice that in the first message. It is getting in touch with someone (a person, company etc.) it only works with other human beings.
does it always have to be with 'bei'? Or could it also be 'sich mit etwas melden'?
