  • Each parent must train the child to obey and respect the child's teachers and the law.

  • Each parent must encourage and enable the child to get a healthy amount of physical activity.
  • During their parenting time, each parent must ensure the child practices proper hygiene, including regular bathing, teeth brushing and hair combing as applicable.

Child's possessions
