Most teen car crashes occur during the first six to 12 months after receiving their license, but teens are half as likely to be involved in a crash when their parents set rules. There’s plenty you can do to help your teen beat the statistics. Provide plenty of parent-supervised driving practice, control the keys so you can go over driving plans each time they get behind the wheel, and co-develop your safety rules. Don’t forget to create a code word so your teen can notify you when they need to be picked up from an unsafe situation. And breathe!
