The workflow with id cannot be used as a child workflow because it is missing a response action

This is the parent flow:

And this is the child flow:

I simply want to pass the today's date from the parent to the child.

 

I get the error:

@WebPortal - At the end of the Child flow, you need to add an action called "Response to Power App or flow". I have this in a Child flow (see below). I just added an output of "CompletedFlag" with a value of 1. The output value is needed even if you aren't passing any value back to the parent flow.
