Okay, I've been lurking for a while so I know it may be pointless to ask, but please be gentle. :)
I need some opinions on this one, although I think it is settled for now.
BD takes a new job through a temp agency at the beginning of the summer. Multiple shifts are available but he chooses 7:30-4:30 because he like to be off earlier, so far so good. BD has DS10 Wednesday nights and therefore has been dropping him off at camp at 7:00 all summer on Thursday mornings. This was working okay, but not splendidly, as DS gets headaches without enough sleep and in general is having a hard time in the AM.
Now the school year is starting and BD would like to drop DS off to BM every morning at 7:00. BM says no, she doesn't think it's best for DS to get up at 6:00 now that he is back in school, and BD should drop off at bedtime if he can't arrange his schedule to drop DS at school. DS sleeps until 7:00 with BM, and seems to do well on that schedule.
So...what to do? It is BD's time per the CO, but keeping DS overnight makes school more difficult for him. Does parents visitation time win over the kid getting more rest?
(DS can't just go to bed earlier, his school is pretty rigorous and the homework often keeps him up late as it is)
