COH logoThe Carnival of Homeschooling is up at Melissa's Idea Garden.

The first post touched on a topic that I've worried about ever since I gave birth. What plans to make in the event of the homeschooling mom dying. In our case we've bought enough life assurance on me to cover the wages of a teacher to come into the home and teach the kids. If something should happen to Marc, we have enough life assurance to allow me to continue staying at home and maintain our current lifestyle. Our big worry is what will happen if both of us die. Marc's sister, who will be their guardian, has a very demanding job. We need to talk more about the children's education should ever happen.

Dear Shez,
It should be life insurance, not assurance.

Shez said...

Only in the US would it be life insurance. In the rest of the English speaking world it is life assurance. You buy assurance on a life and insurance on inanimate objects.

Wow Shez - that's a good point. I'd never thought of that, but it's great that you've planned for the contingency. I also have the "if I'm hit by a bus today" contingencies & papers written up... hopefully no one will ever have to use them!

Marc's sister is very amenable to doing all she can to ensure your children receive the kind of education you want them to have. Getting Marc's sister up to speed so she can monitor and manage the teacher(s) homeschooling your children is probably the biggest challenge. Marc's sister prefers you and Marc live long, healthy lives, and this concern is never realized, g-d willing.
