My son turned 16 in January and wants to drive badly. My husband doesn't think he should drive until he's 17 and we finally agree on something! I feel 16 is way too young and can't imagine him behind a wheel. I can't believe that legally 16 yr olds are allowed to drive. Makes me not want to get behind the wheel!
He begs and begs and we finally gave into him getting a learner's permit. We figured we'll teach him over the next year. Now he wants to go driving all the time. We've gone a few times and already he makes big common sense mistakes, although he's a straight A Honor student. He wants to take driver's ed, but I want him to take that when he's 17 and is actually ready to drive. Anyone experience the same with their teenager? He's SUCH a good kid with everything. A little smart alec but no smoking, no drinking, no drugs, and great grades. But driving is such a SERIOUS endeavor.
