Parental Rights are Fiduciary Rights.Parents have the legal right to make certain decisions concerning their minor children in the best interests of the children. This feature of parental rights explains some of the limitations of the rights, and may also shed light on why and under what conditions these rights might be overridden. Furthermore, the fact that the parent is a trustee means that, even when the parent is acting within the scope of his or her rights and in a situation in which these rights are not overridden, the parents’ choices are to be guided by considerations of the best interests of the children.
