10 minute phone appointment? They'll probably
say you're doing OK, give a word of advice and say call back in X weeks. Maybe not. Are you afraid of what they'll say? No reason to, you don't have to take notice if you don't want to.

There's a bit of CYA to it because she raised the stakes, plus you'd know you'd gone a bit further than you thought necessary to do the best by your son..
