As we will explain, we hold that substantial evidence supports the juvenile court's finding that petitioner‟s efforts were not “reasonable” as required to avoid application of the relevant statutory provisions. Accordingly, we shall affirm.
FACTUAL AND PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND
Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency (the Agency) filed a dependency petition pursuant to section 300 in July 2011, regarding minor, then three and a half years old. Minor's father, H.T. (father), had been arrested for domestic violence and child endangerment; the parents had been living in a tent at a “'homeless' camp,” and father's arrest resulted when he reportedly cut up the tent with a box cutter and threatened to kill minor‟s mother R.T. (mother), after seeing her in a “'sexual position'” with another person.
