Are you the parent? Who has guardianship at the moment?

it means that someone else makes day to day decisions about education, health care, religion, living arrangements, food, activities, living arrangements, who the child sees and when and where. the parent is still the parent but the ability of the parent to make decisions to raise the child is gone while the guardianship exists.
