“How do you decide if your child is ready to start driving? What criteria do you use? I’m just now needing to contemplate this. My daughter wants to know what she has to do to be able to get a learner’s permit and I just don’t know what to say. To say she can when “I” feel comfortable with it or when “I” feel she’s mature enough is frustrating for both of us.” – Cindee N.
We’re all for young drivers. Having teen drivers in our home makes running errands and carrying on with busy life so much easier. Having a benchmark for getting the permit is wise.
But, we scratch our heads at those who insist on waiting till 18. It’s a hard fast rule for some. We know some extremely responsible teens (16-17) be denied the privilege of a license because the parents have some sort of rule in their heads about it. Eh, not for us.
What are your thoughts about teenage driving?
