Sue Scheff: Under YOUR Influence - Parents Your Teens Are Listening
Who are they going to listen to? Driving a vehicle is a big step in life and one that should not be taken lightly. Preparing for your teen to drive starts well before they get behind the wheel.
At the National PTA Conference, Under YOUR Influence promoted their resources to help educate parents to prepare their teens for this major responsibility called driving.
One very good point is made, if you are not your teen's influence, then who will be? They could be relying on someone that doesn't know the importance of wearing a seat belt. Are they aware of the Click It or Ticket law?
You are your teenager's advocate and influence period. Parents are key to your teen learning to drive safely. Under Your Influence offers Practice Tips for Driving with Your Teen - Under Your Influence.
Did you know that 46% of teens admit to texting while driving? It is imperative you instill to your teen that they drive by the rules and they will be able to keep this privilege. Driving is a privilege and a responsibility. If they defy the rules, they will lose their privilege.
