I once took a class regarding driving. The teacher was quite influential. When the class began discussing topics including Driving Under the Influence, I was inspired to write this letter.
Set a good example for your child long before he or she is old enough to apply for a learners permit. He is watching you and how you behave in the drivers seat. Start pointing our hazards and explaining proper driving etiquette early. Kids are paying attention even when you think they aren’t. Talk about safe driving and show him by your example.
Teenagers don’t think like adults. Their brains aren’t fully developed and they can’t understand and use the common sense of an adult. It’s never more evident than in teen age driving. Kids will take chances. They will be reckless with not a thought to safety. That’s why parents must be extra vigilant with young drivers. Talk to your teenager about obeying the rules and the dangers of carelessness. Let him know there will be consequences.
Whether you’re a parent or a new teen driver, these suggestions can help you greatly in your search for that perfect first car.
