On The Road Again
As parents, we know that at some point our children will have to get older, which means they will eventually learn how to drive and be responsible for taking themselves to and from school. Does that make it any less stressful for us? Absolutely not.
We Should All Be More Cautious
The month of August is when teens are sure to be back on the roads, which should raise awareness for drivers of all ages to take care and concern when heading out each day. Adult drivers are encouraged to be more cautious and mindful of the hazards they could cause as well.
Set Rules For Your Teen Drivers
There are a few rules that parents can enforce in order to keep their child more safe on the roads. For example, reminding them often to stay off of their cell phones while behind the wheel, limit distractions; such as changing the song playing - they should create playlists rather than having to look at the device in order to change the song and watch their speed. These are only a few suggestions.
Guidance For Parents
