If my child is the one with the problem, why should we – parents – meet with you, why don’t you just meet with our child?

I believe that parents are the best experts on their own child and they should have a major role in any type of work done with or on behalf of their child. During my initial meeting with parents, together, we decide whether any future meetings would be helpful, and if so, who in the family should participate and when and where those meetings should take place.
