What kind of rights? At my kid's dr., I have my parents listed on their files as someone that the dr can give medical info to and get authorization from. It's just a form they have where you list name, address and phone number of anyone they can talk to regarding your child's medical care. Same thing at the school, my parents are listed as someone who can pick them up, drop them off, come to conferences, etc. I did it b/c as a single parent, I wanted some kind of back up in case something happened to me or I couldn't make it to a dr appt or a conference or something. Maybe you can check and see if there's something like that that you can do. I know, too, that Office Depot sells packs of various legal forms, and I know that power of attorney is one of them, but I don't know what exactly the requirements are on them. Hope that helps a little.
