I encourage the person who is going to be coached to be on the consultation call. If you are a homeschooler and you feel your child(ren) is/can’t handle the call on their own, then feel free to join in. Sometimes, parents prefer to discuss sensitive/delicate concerns with me in the absence of their child. This may require scheduling two separate calls, one with the child(ren) and one without them. Please let me know if this is your preference when scheduling the initial consultation call.
