Driving and Digital Devices
Drivers are 23 times more likely to crash while texting. Gulp. If you’re nervous about your teen behind the wheel, know there are things you can do to help them make good choices. Never check your own phone while driving, even when you’re stopped at a light or in traffic. Teens learn from watching you, and your “quick glance” becomes their “quick glance.” Remember, inexperienced drivers tend to imitate their parents’ driving style, especially when they’re on the road on their own. Make your relationship between driving and devices the one you want your teen to mimic.
