The child is 8 years old.
I wish to change the arrangement for a variety of reasons
i) as there have some been some problems with him getting to school on time and at least one letter has been sent to his mum from the school. This is mirrored that when l come and collect my son at the weekend he is already not ready.
ii) He needs more help with his school work which l dont think his mum is providing. He never has his homework book with him. So l dont know what to do with him at weekends. His mum tells me that my son always forgets it. Surely as she is picking him up from school she should be reminding him. Apparently lm in the wrong other this.
iii) my sons behaviour when with his mum and myself is completely different. for instance she has gone to her GP to get medicine to help him sleep as she says she cannot get him to go to bed. l do not have this problem and although you get the usual moans about not wanting to go to bed he does go. generally l think she has problems imposing boundaries
No, but l will be contacting the school to see of they share the same concerns.
Normally, collect at 09:40 on Saturday and drop him back at 18:30.
For the last few weeks he has been staying with me due to his mum having an operation. So my girldlfriend has been taking and collecting from school as l have to work and can't be flexible with my hours.
Drop back at 18:30 on a sunday
Would it be easier to do this over the telephone?
For the last two weeks. Mum would like him back Sunday evening as normal
