TalkingToTeens

Talk is cheap if you're Keith Richards on a solo side trip from the Rolling Stones. But if you're a parent preparing your teen for the responsibility of driving, conversation is valuable in getting your children off to a safe start on their journey to adulthood. Ironically, the percentage of parents who report talking to their children about safe driving from a young age is inversely proportional to the percentage of teen deaths from car crashes — the age group's leading cause of death. We suggest you engage in an ongoing dialogue, and stress driving as a privilege and safety as a top objective. For more advice on carrying on this conversation, follow the link below.
