Help with Game Engine and parented objects


I am kinda new to blender and while experimenting with a model, I have come to realise that when I hit the p-key and enter the game engine, the parented objects in the mesh disappear while only the parent remains. Is this supposed to happen? If not, how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance!
