Is there ever a good enough reason for a SP to have a POA/"notarized" note from one parent granting them to make big decisions for the children and the other parent not be aware of this or give permission for it?
Why are there SP's and parents who are okay with just handing out this responsibility to the SP while keeping this information from the other parent?
Big decisions, like medical ones, are a big deal and if something goes wrong the OP can, and should, hold you (general you, meaning the SP who holds the POA and makes decisions) responsible for whatever goes wrong because you aren't the parent and both you and one parent thinks you're okay to make these decisions sans the only other parent in the mix being in the know where their child is concerned.
