Does your teenager 'drive' you crazy?

Inculcate safe and responsible driving skills in your youngster.

Driving is serious business

Much before parents handover the car keys to their adolescent sons or daughters, they need to teach safe driving to their young ones. Parents need to address themselves to the driving skills of their children, mainly because rash driving is not a habit one can overlook. Like smoking, drinking and other habits that worry parents, unsafe and rash driving also needs parental attention, that too before it is too late.

Did you know? 

Unsafe driving by irresponsible teenagers is a menace in all countries of the world. It is found that four out of every ten teen deaths are due to driving accidents. Research shows that teens meet with accidents after they jampack their vehicles with friends. The risk of an accident is reduced if the young one drives alone, that too in the daytime. Teens are pre-disposed to taking risks and exhibiting reckless driving. Statistics show that teens are the most likely to speed a vehicle. And the combination of loud music, friends and recklessness proves fatal while driving. Parents therefore must discourage their youngsters from late night driving.

Limit your child's time behind the wheel

While a parent must discourage late night driving, even morning driving must be fixed within parameters. For instance, never let the youngster drive after taking any intoxicating drink. Make it a rule, a value to be cherished all throughout life. Never ever listen to your teenager's heroic tales of driving in tricky situations. If the youngster is inexperienced, do not allow him or her to drive for long distances. 
For example, if your son doesn't want to wear a helmet, in order to keep his hairstyle intact, be firm and lay down ground rules in advance. Take away the motorbike if he insists on not wearing the safety helmet. 

Be a role model

Parents should also be responsible while driving. They should make sure they wear their seat belts, never drink while driving, never drive over the speed limit, never cut lanes and treat traffic rules lightly. If parents set the right precedent, children would be more prone to driving responsibly when they take to the wheel.

License should never be fake

Some parents even encourage their children to start driving early. They don't mind if their teenager fakes his or her date of birth on a driving license, in order to start driving a year before the legally permissible age. Never allow such irresponsible and illegal behavior. For it is the question of your teenager's life and of course many other lives he or she might play with.
