My 16 year od son got his driver's license today...Please remember me in your prayers that he doesn't put anymore grey hairs on my head and that he is extremely careful with my van...I would appreciate it very much...(My baby is growing up on me)!

May God keep him in His hands, and give you peace of mind. I remember when Kelly first got her driver's license, and I thought I would surely go crazy worrying while she was gone.

Praying for his safety and your peace!

Increase your liability coverage until he turns 18 and moves out on his own. I can give you reasons if needed, but suffice to say there are people out there who will sue at the drop of a hat. Good luck. Prayers in progress.

I will keep you and your son in my prayers.
I pray for his safty.
I pray for your sanity.

I kind of lost my sanity the first time I rode with my son after he got his license. He was a great driver when he had his permit, but that first ride with him with his license almost did me in. LOL
Like I always say, I have earned every grey hair I have under that dye! LOL

This is not fun to think about, but as an insurance agent, and someone who lost someone in a car accident, get life insurance for him. If anything terrible were to happen to him, you do not need the added stresses of financial problems associated with that.

We've got a few years to go, but I'm already planning to install one of those black boxes that records speed, routes, etc. Big Brother's got nothing on me! I also read yesterday that the accident rate among teens plummets when the teen does not actually own the car but has to borrow one from a parent. Apparently, they're much more careful when the vehicle doesn't belong to them--as I'm sure any of us would be.

I love this classified ad run in a Nebraska newspaper last year:

“Totally uncool parents who obviously don’t love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for 3 weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet.”

I highly recommend getting a GPS and I know parents that have installed cameras in the car.

I think neither of those are unrealistic, even with mature and well behaved teens.

Mothers don't stop worrying about their kids, no matter how big they grow. I remember going to visit my parents, after I was grown with children of my own. My mother and I were going somewhere and she was driving. As she braked for a stop light, she absent-mindedly put her hand up in front of my chest, to keep her little boy (who grew up before seatbelts) from falling forward into the dashboard. We had a good laugh about it, and now I have a favorite memory of her.

My mother still does that, as a result I do it to anyone in my car.

Isn't that delightful? I still do that too. Thanks for the memory.

Awwwwww! That is such a sweet memory to have of your mom. I also always put my arm over but now it is usually my dog that I'm protecting. Thank you for sharing a sweet story.

My father used to fling his arm across the car seat to prevent me from lurching forward during his three-point foot-slamming-on-the-brake landing in front of our house. And, it was as effective as a seat belt.

Whenever my younger son would get behind the wheel, I would cringe. Especially the sharp turn by the graveyard between Evanston, IL and Chicago , IL...LOL. I survived I trust you will too.

Just reading these past few posts made me smile as I don't feel so alone anymore. I constantly am throwing my arm across whoever is in the passenger seat especially when braking quickly............
My son and I both broke our necks in a car accident on black ice, and I was very nervous when he first started driving, but I am proud to say he is a very cautious driver. I feel the accident had alot to do with it, but I wish it hadn't have happened anyway. At least he's not afraid of driving. I thank God every day that he can drive as we both broke the same bone Christopher Reeves did, and we are both walking.

Your son will be fine. Have faith in him and trust that the good Lord is watching over him................

I think Connor will be eligible to take drivers ed this coming spring and I'm about sick to my stomach over it.
