What does a guardian do?

As a guardian, you are responsible for seeing that the minor's personal needs are met.  This includes food, clothing, shelter, medical needs, education, social development, and religious activities.  You must provide for the safety, protection, and emotional well-being of the minor.  Like a parent, you should maintain close contact with the teachers and doctors of the minor.
