As a soon-to-be new parent you probably read "What to Expect When You Are Expecting" cover to cover, right? Along with baby name books, Parenting Magazine, nutrition books, "The Happiest Baby on the Block," and the list goes on. Then you were probably busy taking prenatal yoga, birthing and breastfeeding classes. You had the hospital bag packed before you took the hospital tour too?
Decorated the nursery
Secured the carseat in the car with some help from the local safety police class
Hung all the baby clothes by size & color
Had every diaper, cream, and lotion all ready on the changing table
You did it all - or as much as you could while carrying around an extra 30 pounds and taking bathroom breaks every 20 minutes because there was a foot kicking your bladder.
It is hard to think about you not being there for your child, but it is even harder for you to think about and your child to try and survive without you if you didn't have the foresight to plan. At the very least, name trusted family and friends to act as your child's guardian in the event you are not able to do so even for a short period of time.
However, for all the "prep" work parents do, very few do one of the MOST important things every parent needs when they have a child....put a Child Protection Plan in place.
It may seem sad or too difficult, but a Child Protection Plan will actually give you an immense feeling of peace and relief knowing your child will always be taken care of by someone you choose after careful consideration. It is also really easy and you can get started right NOW from the comfort of your home.
It is our mission to provide "a plan for every family" and here is a great way to get started! We will help you one-on-one or at one of our Guardian Nomination Workshops. Y will end up with legally binding documents nominating your chosen guardians.
If you need even more help and guidance, call (978) 296-4140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to schedule a Family Plan Session to design a complete estate plan. If you are one of the first 2 families to book this week for the last week of August we will be able to waive the session fee! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Good luck and we would love to hear how your virtual Kids Protection Plan turns out!
