Today's Action Item - Talk to Your Spouse About Guardians for Your Children
List out all the people you would consider, then think about what matters to you in raising your children (values, health and schooling decisions, physical location, discipline style, etc.) where these people fall on that scale. Think about the age, health and living situations of your potential guardians. You may find that the choices are easier than you think once you begin to really think about it.
You may not reach a decision at the end of the session, and that's ok. When the timer sounds, you can stop and schedule a time (in the near future) to work on it further.
When you are ready to take the next step of meeting with an attorney to legally memorialize your guardian choices, and make sure that any funds you leave to your children will be managed appropriately by the people of your choosing, call me at 781-749-2284.
