Athletic activities in school often need parental release or waiver in order for students to participate in sports programs and athletics. In activities where the danger of injuries is real, schools need parents to sign waivers in order for them not to be held liable for any injuries incurred during the course of the athletic activities. This kind of parent release covers instructors, coaches, supervisors, and the whole school in general. While participating in sports activities may be encouraged, the danger of being held liable limits the school’s ability to fully develop kids’ sports programs without the waiver of liability.
Even field trips need parental release forms just in case something happens during the course of such an event. Even boy scout camping trips need parent releases that need to be signed not just for purposes of granting permission but as a form of waiver.

For doctors who need to treat children through any form of medical procedures, a parent release is also needed in the form of a consent for treatment. Being minors, children do not have the legal nor moral capacity to decide the course of their treatment. For this matter, a medical consent is needed before doctors can perform any medical procedure on kids, especially if they require surgery. Even emergency medical treatment need parental consent, especially in their absence.
For children who need to travel, a parental release form may also be needed by airport authorities before the child is allowed to travel. In most cases where divorce proceeding become battlegrounds for custody, authorities are wary when kids travel alone with only a single parent in tow. A travel release needs the signature of both parents in order for the child to be allowed to board the plane. There have been incidences when parents who lost custody of their kids in divorce proceeding resorted to kidnapping their children even if the kids willingly accompanied those parents.
The above examples show the importance of parental release forms in different scenarios. These are intended to protect kids either from being exploited or from being seriously injured. With a lot of provisions in place, it is hoped parents will become more responsible in handling their kids as well as be aware of the consequences if parental release is not being utilized.
