As you can see, the child script loads, then the parent.

My parent theme has a script in includesjscustom.js, and I am trying to override this from my child theme. I can see from my parent theme that it is en-queued using this code: (I’ve trimmed some non-relevant lines of wp_enqueue_script() calls.)

function my_deregister_scripts() {
        wp_deregister_script( 'jquery' );
        wp_enqueue_script('jquery', get_template_directory_uri().'../includes/js/jquery.min.js', false, '1.6.4');
        wp_enqueue_script('jquery-custom', get_template_directory_uri().'../includes/js/custom.js', false, '1.0');
        if ( is_singular() && get_option('thread_comments') ) wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );

At first , I thought I could simply add some code into my own child functions.php like this:

function custom_script_fix()
    wp_dequeue_script( 'jquery-custom' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'child-jquery-custom', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() .'../includes/js/custom.js', false, '1.0');
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'custom_script_fix' );

but then I read in the codex that nowadays, the child functions.php is run immediately before the parent functions.php. This means that I am dequeueing something that will obly be enqueued again in the parent functions.php. This results in my script being loaded first, followed by the parent script:

So, how would I do this without modifying the parent theme in any way?
