Choosing the Right Guardian

Finding a babysitter or a nanny can be stressful, but at least it’s only for a few hours until you get back home. With them, you don’t have to worry too much about factors like parenting, education, and moral stability.

But choosing someone to take long-term care of your kids can be one of the most difficult decisions you have to make. And if you don’t make a last will, the court will decide who your kids go to, not you. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re choosing the right guardians for your kids before it’s too late.

Guardians provide for your children’s health, education, and daily needs. Think about a few of these factors when considering a guardian for your kids:

1) How old are your kids? The age of your child may determine how much attention your child will need from a potential guardian.

2) Who do you know that would be willing and have the ability to serve as a guardian? It’s important to talk with potential guardians about their willingness and ability to meet the demands of raising your children.

3) What values are important to you? What values are important to the guardian? If you have particular religious or moral values that are important to you, you should select a guardian that shares the same values.

4) Does the guardian already have a family? It’s important to think about whether the guardian could handle adding more children to their family.
