  • See that the child is cared for and loved.
  • See that school age children attend school.
  • Provide supervision for the child.
  • Cooperate with the goals of the service plan.
  • Cooperate with visitation between child and parent.
  • Cooperate with court ordered services.
  • Make sure the child keeps all appointments.
  • Keep the social worker and court informed of the child's progress.
  • Explain to the child in a positive way why the parent is not able to provide care right now.
