What is the difference between day-to-day care and guardianship?

Both parents of a child/children are its guardians and parents should act jointly when making decisions about issues such as where the child lives, where he/she goes to school, what religion he/she practices and whether he/she should be given certain medical treatments. Guardianship does not cease when a parent does not have the physical care of a child.

Day to day care involves making arrangements for a child's care on a daily basis.
