  3. Guessing… At best • Spouse/family takes care of the kids.

    • No financial issues. • No moral support/decision making/guidance issues. At worst • Kids miss our absence. • Lack of adequate help with finance, hand- holding/guidance on key decisions (education/career), and any other troubles they get into. 2 June 2012 © 2012 Sridhar Machani 3
  4. Godfather? From the Wikipedia: “Traditionally, godparents were informally responsible for

    ensuring the child's religious education was carried out, and for caring for the child should he/she be orphaned. Today, the word godparent might not have explicitly religious overtones. The modern view of a godparent tends to be an individual chosen by the parents to take an interest in the child's upbringing and personal development.” 2 June 2012 © 2012 Sridhar Machani 4
