So, the big moment has finally arrived for your son or daughter: they've gotten their Indiana driver's license. But it may be more of an apprehensive moment for you; now that your teen has the freedom to be on the road without you, you won't be able to guard their safety as closely as when you're the one behind the wheel.
Luckily, I DRIVE SAFELY offers a Parent-Teen Driving Contract to help alleviate those worries! It serves as a mutual agreement between you and your teen that will give both of you peace of mind. It's comprehensive, covering topics including:
- Driving curfew
- Passenger policies
- Driving in bad weather conditions
- Car maintenance
Above all, the focus is on safety. When you and your son or daughter sit down to discuss rules and consequences, it's fine to disagree on some points; just make sure they know that your main interest is keeping them out of harm's way. If you work together, you should have no trouble at all finding common ground on what's comfortable for both of you.
- Personalize it so that it works for the two of you
- Lay everything out so you're both on the same page
- Keep communication open to promote honesty and trust
