Hello, I am new here and was looking for some help/advice. My son has ADHD and a severe learning disability and is on daily meds. For the past several months my ex keeps "forgetting" to give our son his meds on the weekend visits. This throws my son totally off track interferes with his sleep, ect. I have talked to my ex about this several times but it continues to happen. I have a schedule here at my home, and my son takes his medicine at the same time every day. I am custodial parent and my son lives with me and has weekend visitation with dad from Friday evening to Sundays at 6pm. I am lost as to what to do.
