Chapter 14:

A Man Should Not Call His Father By His Name Nor Sit Down Before He Does Nor Walk Ahead Of Him

It is related from ‘Urwah - or other than him - that Abu Hurayra saw two men and said to one of them: “Who is this man in relation to you?” He said, “He is my father.” Abu Hurayra said, “Do not call him by his name nor walk ahead of him nor sit down before he does.” (Authentic Chain)


The child does that by way of honoring the parents. However, the child could walk ahead of him in circumstances where only doing so assures the child’s safety. Allah knows Best.
