Assisted Adulting: Essential Estate Planning Tools for Young Adults

Posted by Neil Tyra | Aug 09, 2021 | 0 Comments

Remember when you were a kid and the summer was gloriously long? And it seemed to take forever to get through August? Now it seems that summer doesn't even start until July 4th and it's over mid-August. What happened? How did it get to be back to school time so quickly? Ugh...
 
A lot of you are sending kids back to college or maybe off to college for the first time. While that is a fabulous milestone, as a parent of two college graduates I can tell you that it can be terrifying as well. For most of us, it represents the first time our children are away from us for an extended period of time. And while Zoom and cell phones shorten the distance, they can't help if your child gets seriously ill or injured. Now that they are eighteen years or older, you don't have the same parental rights you had when they were younger.
 
We have written about this in the past, but now we have put together a comprehensive parental guide that summarizes the issues and gives you a starting point for having adult conversations with your grown children about how to protect them when they are away and how you can best help them should something terrible happen.
 
Yup, it's big boy/big girl stuff. But that's why they pay us the big bucks as parents.
 
Feel free to share this guide with anyone you feel would benefit from it. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
