My son just turned 5 and is on medication 4x a day. He hasn't seen his dads parents in 19 months or more and they just came to visit the kids for a week. I agree'd to let the kids stay with them in the hotel for the time they were in town on the agreement they would follow the medication times, which they said was no problem. They took my son (5) and daughter (6) and even called me 2x to make sure they were gonna give meds right. I went the first day and showed her what was needed.

Both kids just came home to which I found out my son hasn't been getting any of his meds at all. Their grandma says I'm just taking his psychic ability away by medicating him and she had the right to refuse. Now shes discussing how she wants the kids to fly to Vegas on their own for the whole summer next year and possibly over Christmas break. My son is out of control and over emotional after we've been having so much good luck with the new med increase. I refuse to send the kids with their grandparents if they are not going to follow the medication guidelines for my son.

Any tips how I get their grandma to listen or do I just stand my ground (their dad and I aren't together and haven't been for years). I hate to keep the kids from seeing grandparents but I can't stand to see my son like this either. Sorry so long.

(((hugs)))) I'm sorry hun, that is a crappy situation to put you in. You are the MOM it's your right to do what you need to do for YOUR child. In all honesty I wouldn't let him go with them anymore, but that's just me lol
