Rebecca Provder is quoted in an article concerning the naming of a legal guardian for children under 18.  In the event of an emergency or another unforeseen circumstance, designating a legal guardian will alleviate any concerns as to who will care for your child. According to Provder, typical guardian responsibilities include providing a home for the child, making health and education decisions on behalf of the child and fostering the child's social well-being. Only those individuals age 18 and older and legal residents or U.S. citizens can be named as legal guardians.
