Count(Children()) Not Counting Correctly

I am trying to create a rollup of the status of the phase using a modified version of the method from this post:

The problem I am running into is somehow the simple COUNT(CHILDREN()) portion of my formula is not counting the correct number of children. As shown in this screenshot, there are clearly 3 children of this parent row, but it is only counting 2 when I use the formula =COUNT(CHILDREN()). Any idea why this could be?
