A Teen’s Guide For Talking To Parents About Wanting To Drive
So… you decided that learning to drive is a must and you want badly that driving license. Ok, but… do your parents know about your intentions? No? Are you afraid of what they might say?
Don`t worry, it is perfectly natural for parents to disagree with the whole learning to drive perspective, if they fell you are not responsible enough. After all, it is your safety that matters most for them and besides, you will likely drive their car, until you earn your own money and can purchase your own car. Accidents resulting in your injury or the car`s damage are a terrible perspective.
You must do your best to convince your parents that you are mature enough to drive safely. You can put their mind at ease by emphasizing responsibility. You must understand responsibility and not just talk about it. Driving carelessly, you put yourself and other people in danger – and this is neither acceptable not pardonable.
Ensure your parents that their car will be safe with you, anytime they decide to let you drive it. Do not give them reasons to worry about you taking the car without their consent. Ensure them that you will attend one of the Colorado Springs driving schools and learn safety driving skills.
And… it might not hurt to remind them that when you will have your license, they will not have to lose time driving you everywhere.
