Teen Tip Tuesday-Safe Driving Tips

16 Nov

One of the scariest parts of being a parent is knowing that your kids are going to have to learn to drive. Teaching Beloved to drive was stressful for all of us and one of those necessary tasks in life that I’m happy to have behind us.  It’s not that our kids aren’t able to become amazing drivers, they are safer than most once newly trained, it’s just that the world suddenly gets a lot bigger when you set them free inside a vehicle.  Safe driving tips are important!

Safe driving tips for teens from Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad

Since I’ve spent the years training my daughter to drive, I’m confident that she’s gotten the tools to be a “safer” driver and mostly I’m worried about the others on the road or those that she chooses to ride with.  Did you know that only 44% of teens said they would speak up if someone they were riding with drove in a dangerous way that scared them?  That makes me wonder what parents can do to keep our kids safe on the road.

Here’s some safe driving tips for teens

    Driving safely is indeed important, not only for your safety but for all of those around you too. You want to make sure that you aren’t the cause of any harm done to you and others. This is the reason you need to pay attention while being taught to drive from your parents and other instructors.

    Well, I am planning to enroll my 17 years old son as he always ask me about it. At first, I’m a bit worried because driving needs a lot of safety precautions but I just realized that it has many benefits for him. Now, I just want him to be aware safe always as he is learning how to drive.

    Thanks for this resource. I have one already driving and one who is old enough, but still doesn’t have his permit. The hardest thing ever is watching your child drive away. So many dangers on the road to worry about.

      Beloved wasn’t in a hurry to get her permit and when it finally happened we took it slow. She had her permit for 2 years before we went for the license. She was ready and felt she had practiced on each lesson enough. But that didn’t make it easier. Thankfully, she was happy to be chaperoned for such a long time. Don’t rush it!
