Estate planning is about so much more than "who gets what" when you pass away. A solid Estate Plan not only protects you, but can also protect your family members - especially your children.
When your child turns 18 years of age, they may no longer need a "guardian" but they still need guidance. In fact, since they are technically "adults," they would probably benefit from having at least a Durable Power of Attorney and Health Care Documents in case you (as a parent) need to act on their behalf.
