How to Set a Good Example for Teen Drivers
In the blink of an eye, my kids will be teen drivers. In the state of Iowa, 14 1/2 year olds are legally able to get a school driver’s permit and drive themselves and one sibling to school. We’re not there yet, but will be before I know or am ready for it. My babies are not supposed to be so old, because I tell you what, I haven’t aged at all in the last 20 years… 😀
April is Distracted Driving Month, so with the help of Megabus.com, I’m telling you, it’s time to put down the phone and set a good example for your kids. They might not be teen drivers, yet, but they will be before you know it. And you better bet they’re watching how you drive RIGHT NOW. Whatever it is that tempts you to pick up your phone when you’re driving, it can wait.
Repeat after me. It. Can. Wait.
The teen driving statistics are down right scary and too many young lives have been lost. Many adults are incapable of putting down the phone and driving, so how can we expect our kids to do the same?
