I have full custodial care of my granddaughter. She is 4 and has ADHD, adjustment disorder, anxiety, voiding dysfunction, and must take medication on a regular schedule. Her schedule is not followed near the schedule at home. She goes to bed at 7pm and is up by 8am. When I call, she is still in bed at 10 or 11 most times. She has to take her meds at certain times of the day and if she isn’t getting it, I deal with the problems when she comes home as well as her difficulty transitioning from one “free for all” home to our home again. How do I handle this? It seems that no matter what I do or say, I am ignored and her important schedule is not followed and her gains in independence have been thwarted by the regressive encouragement from this person.
