    I also think it depends on age. Elementery school kids I’d talk to parents but by middle or high school talking directlty to the kid may be in order as a first step.

    I think the original advice is the best, speak to the parents (no matter what the child’s age is). It’s hard to see from here whether the lateness is because the child is dawdling or the parents aren’t getting him up in time. The parents may not be aware of the problem the child’s lateness is causing, and the polite suggestion mentioned is a good way to alert them.
