Then consider, what ‘s important to you – their values, trust, their age, parenting style, location? When you reach a decision, make sure you ask the person for their permission.  Remember to talk to your family and friends about guardianship so that everyone knows where they stand. Then make it legal and get your will updated, making sure you review guardianship every few years as things can change!  Don’t relegate this to the too hard basket – take care of it today.
