Yep, the title says it all – my teenager is not only driving, she’s weeks away from having her full-fledged license. It’s a scary thought, but I’m not sure if she’s more scared of it or if I am! She doesn’t have a car yet, so solo excursions will be at a minimum for the time-being, but we’ve been car shopping and comparing makes and models, and she’ll have one in the near future.
Teen doesn’t know it yet, but I’m going to have her sign a driving agreement that I modified from one that was published recently in a Dear Abby column. I’m of a mind that if a person knows what’s expected of them, it’s a heck of a lot easier to do the right thing. This agreement lays it all out and can hopefully be a good tool for her. I’m linking the agreement below – what do you think about it? Did I miss anything or am I being too heavy-handed? All input is welcome!
