No, it's the custodial parent's responsibility to see to that the court order is followed. If the visitation order is not followed the custodial parent will be in contempt of a court order and could eventually lose custody. It would be better to discuss the reasons why the children are uncomfortable about visiting and the try to address their complaints. The parents should try to get along and not alienate the children in any way.
