Driving with safety first…2 down 1 to go!!

  When your teens reach that age where it is time to let them mingle with the rest of the world, it can be a little scary for most parents😮….but for me…Nope.

   I couldn’t wait to get my teens out there experiencing the world but they have to be comfortable doing it on their own first then you push them out the nest…so on that note, I will tell you what I am most proud of right now…My teens are driving!!

   First came my oldest son 👨‍💼Brian Jr. who is almost 21 years old-he got his license at 16 years old. Second my daughter 👸Briana who has her permit at 15 years old and will be getting her license in December and my youngest son 👦Devon who is almost 19 years old is in the process of getting his permit. He was delayed in getting his license because of the Special Education program which doesn’t allow for him to take drivers Ed. online …which I thought was ridiculous. 

   Two years ago, when Jr. started driving I came up with a way to ensure that my teens practiced safety everytime they got in the car. Of course, it is pure coincidence that our name is Smith and it helps them remember this before they pull out the driveway…

 S.M.I.T.H is our way of making sure that our teens know what is important to check when driving a car every time. 

  Along with the S.M.I.T.H, we make sure to teach our teens about distractions behind the wheel, like the radio, eating food, friends and most importantly texting or looking at your phone while driving…anything could jump out of nowhere and cause many casualties.  

Year one rule: No radio use during driving. Always tell us where you are going and text when you get there.  When you are leaving text us to let us know when you are coming back. 

   Teach your teens about the responsibility that comes with the keep of the car such as gas, insurance, registrations, keeping license current and most importantly what to do if they are involved in an accident.

  I know this is alot but teens have to realize they need to get a job and take the next step in being responsible for being an adult.

One thought on “Driving with safety first…2 down 1 to go!!

  1. Congratulations to all of your children for getting on the roads! I’m 27 and still aren’t there yet! I started my driving lessons last year but then stopped due to a number of things happening in my personal life. Now I have no babysitter for my toddler until she’s a little older so have to wait.. I need to get on the road! It’s great your children have done it while they’re still young, I wish I’d have done it MUCH sooner!
