Did you suggest to the mother that her parenting may be the problem?

Hi Felix,

A mentor of mine once said you have to, "meet people where they are". This is especially true when working with clients. If you confront them before you have established a therapeutic bond they will often become defensive and change therapists. I also have to find out what's behind this inability to embrace the possibility that it might be her parenting and address that fear or anxiety.

Thanks Kellen, I understand and I wish you success.
