Learning to Drive – Letting Your Child Go Free

Learning To Drive is Stressful

There are many watershed moments in our parental lives.  We send the kids to school, allow them to spend the night somewhere else, and even send them off to camp.  None of these match the stress caused by watching your baby drive a car.  We all know it is moderately safe, but that does not stop our fears.  There are all sorts of things that can go wrong.  However, usually, things go right.  We can reduce our fear and worry by spending those learner permit months in a car with our kid.  Teach them important things like parking and defensive driving.  Heck, we can even teach them how to change a flat tire.

The time we spend teaching our kids about cars and driving pays off in better sleep once our kids are driving alone.  The confidence in driving we build is maybe even more for us than for them.
