    I would have a sit down with the parent explaining that we understand when life happens and whatnot but also let them know the realization that it may affect their child when they are constantly late to pick them up after school, it may make the child think differently of the parent such as am I being abandoned or they don’t quite understand the situation entirely but it’s not a positive interaction either. You do want to find out the reasoning for the lateness and try to have empathy and create new paths on how to solve the situation if you can, but if the pattern continues you’d probably need to have a serious conference and further detail about what to do from there.
