Is there a way that parents can receive push email notifications from their child's Canvas site when things are changed or updated?
Observers can adjust their notifications through the desktop. (How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an observer?) To be alerted to when content is updated, they would want to adjust the Course Content line.
I would proceed with this using caution; an email notification would be generated any time the "save" button is pushed in any course by an instructor. So even if a teacher just goes in to fix formatting or a typo, the notifications set to "immediately" would generate an email each time. ...and that could mean a lot of emails.
