👉 👉 👉 Young adults who are eager for independence may push back against a request to sign a college power of attorney, believing they don't really need it or you're trying to control them. But because a medical power of attorney only goes into effect after doctors certify that the student can't make their own decisions, it gives parents no control unless there's an emergency. Under normal circumstances, students retain their privacy and autonomy. You can also write in start and end dates to reassure your student that this is a limited power of attorney for college.
