Personal Care Decisions
A category of legal decision-making that has not yet been defined in the law. Generally, though, it is thought to include bigger decisions that impact a child’s life, such as whether they get an ear pierced or get a tattoo. It may include whether a child gets a smartphone or a car. It does not include smaller, everyday decisions like what clothes they wear, what they eat, what TV shows they watch, or what friends they play with.
