It used to be that talking to a child's parents made a difference. If parents were asked to come to school, the kid was terrified because the kid knew he or she would be disciplined afterwards. Nowadays, not so much. Only *some* parents care enough to discipline their children. So yes, I would say meet the parents because it *might* work, but don't get your hopes up.
Meeting parents of errant students may help the situation to a point but it will not change the student. If the student is not coming as it is meeting their parents is not going to be enough to change the situation. More would have to be done to get disciplined students.
