Delegation of Parental Responsability
Because you are not always present with your children, you may need to delegate your parental responsibility to someone in whose care you have entrusted your children. This will allow that person to authorize necessary medical care and to have the right to discipline them when needed. For this purpose, use a DELEGATION OF PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
