I missed the question on the minimum standard of care. I went back and reviewed the material and did not find the answer necessary to help me.

Thorough

This course was great! I learned a lot about how to asses the well-being of a child and how to use the "Best Interest Principle" to figure what a child really needs. I especially liked that this chapter gave scenarios of cases one might have as a GAL volunteer and recommendations of what a GAL volunteer might do in each situation.
