Your kids safety is priority one. Sadly, it's not your ex husbands. Has he always been a drinker or this something new? Regardless, he should not be driving. Go to the court and seek a tougher custodial agreement. Show the judge the video your daughter made. Make it so that he is not allowed to drive with children in the car. Sorry to sound harsh, but this should be the easiest decision unless you want to bury your kids. It just takes one accident. If he wants to drink at home and they want to witness that - maybe that's okay because at least he's not driving...or maybe the visitation needs to be monitored/supervised until he can get his sobriety in check. It's sad that he feels he needs to drink. But until he wants to get help, you need to be the responsible parent and put the safety of your children first. The kids can also refuse to get into the car when their dad drives. Although, I think having a court order may be best and not put the kids in that kind of position. There are so many options to getting around these days - taxi, uber, lyft, his girlfriend, another sober friend.. there's absolutely no excuse. Good luck! Tough situation to be in.
