You are your children’s best advocate. You know exactly how they like their sandwiches cut, what story they could listen to a thousand times a day, who their friends are, and how school is going. You are involved with your kids and only want the best for them. You are a responsible parent, so you plan educational trips and outings, manage the family finances, and carefully choose your babysitters and other childcare providers. But have you taken the time to put a plan in place in case something happens and you can no longer take care of yourself or your children?
An Unpleasant Possibility
Who wants to consider the possibility of injury or incapacity leaving them unable to provide for loved ones, especially children? Unfortunately, accidents can happen. And when there are no directives in place, the children are often lost in the shuffle. Whatever your wishes are for their care, there’s nothing to make sure those wishes are followed.
