Our teens have been watching and learning from us since they were babies, so there’s no reason to think that they stop watching and learning from us once they get their license.
It is essential that we model good driving behavior and follow the rules of the road. Instructing them to drive properly and then not following those rules ourselves is hypocritical.
It’s also true that nobody’s perfect and we all makes mistakes from time to time. We shouldn’t be surprised if our teens feel the need to correct us when they see bad driving habits behind the wheel. Teaching our teens to drive can make us all better drivers.
DriveitHOME™ is an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed by and for parents of newly licensed teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience to become safer drivers.
