Parents should make picking a guardian a priority

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Parents struggle over some of the most mundane child-rearing decisions every day. What should their children be eating, wearing, doing? Should they go to this school or that summer camp? When should they go to bed?

But one of the most important decisions — who should decide these things if something happens to the parents? — often goes unmade.

“In my judgment, most people with minor children probably have nothing in place that names a guardian,” says Dennis Wilson of Wilson and Haubert, a law firm based in North Little Rock. “You know, they’re growing families, they’re working and they’re taking their money to raise their families. They’re not going out and spending money on attorneys to draft the appropriate documents to deal with that.”

For parents of young children, this is one task that should move to the top of the priority list. See Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for more.
