Parental Rights and Responsibilities
Parenting rights and responsibilities refer to the obligation that parents have to their child. A few aspects of parenting responsibility include housing and protecting the child, caring for the child, and providing the child with an education. Regardless of whether a parent has legal rights and responsibilities to a child, they are still obligated to support the child financially.
