Parents should have open communication with children where they can share about the danger of being wrapped up in teen idols.
Where , which ,who 之類不是指前一個的noun嗎?

According to the dictionary, "where" (adverb) can be used after words or phrases that refer to a place or situation to mean ‘at, in or to which’.
Therefore, the word "where" in your sentence refers to the situation of parents having open communication with children, and means "in which".
"Where" doesn't necessarily refer to the noun that immediately precedes it. (不一定指前一個的名詞)

If you study maths in English, you'll find a lot of "where" being used in the expression, such as where x = a + b. So, apart from places, it can also refer to situations as stated in the main clause.

You are wrong about your first example of where.
"Where" cannot be a subject of the relative clasue it introduces.

The use of coma cannot be abused. You can't put a coma for a restrictive relative clause.
e.g. He is the person, who has taught us swimming. (wrong)
He is the person who has taught us to swim. (correct)
