So I rarely sound off my frustrations here but I just can’t stay silent any longer. This month we have a special offer in Rochester & Genesee Valley Parent for a FREE copy of a quick read, an eye-opening book on protecting your kids, Wear Clean Underwear. (You can get a free digital copy by signing up at www.rocparentsbook.com or calling our office at 585-244-2170. If you want a hard copy I’ll pay for it but I ask that you cover $4.95 for shipping and handling from Amazon.) ***Please note that we’ve had problems with the recordings from the 800# so you’re better off calling the office if you want the hard copy.
We’ve had hundreds of people request it since we first offered it to parents last summer, and I’m so gratified that so many moms and dads really care about protecting their kids, and not just with the right car seat or background check on the sitter or care center. But I also see that many of those parents do not open our emails once they receive the book and only a handful each month have followed up with us to take advantage of a FREE planning session (a $750 value) that we offered when we sent the book so they can name guardians on the spot for their kids. Odds are that with the sheer volume of people requesting the book that something bad will happen to some, like a car accident or serious illness, something that prevents them from being there for their kids and leaves the kids at the mercy of adults they don’t know and trust. It really breaks my heart because it’s so easy to avoid the added stress and pain for your children.
When I talk to friends most of them admit they’ve done nothing at all and only a few have done the bare minimum by naming guardians under their wills. Isn’t it insanity to spend thousands on car seats, safety products and nannies/care but do nothing to protect your kids if you can’t be there for them?
If you’re reading this, go ahead and grab your free copy at www.rocparentsbook.com and THEN, even before you get the book, CALL US AT THE POWERS LAW FIRM TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE PLANNING SESSION WHERE YOU CAN NAME GUARDIANS ON THE SPOT FOR YOUR CHILDREN. Don’t become one of those statistics, please. Mention you read this blog post. We’ll get you in ASAP.
