Last month I read a nice article addressing why more parents of minor children do not take action. The author cites 4 myths:
- There is a perfect match. I'd call this analysis paralysis....you search and search, but take no action;
- Someone will step up;
- A letter or email is sufficient;
- You don't need to ask the guardian before making the nomination.
Thanks to Prof. Gerry Breyer for posting this article on his blog.
If you have children, take charge now. The last thing your child(ren) need is to loose both parents and then have a dispute over who will raise them.
