    • It’s really hard to trust them to drive alone. Especially the son’s.

      My son is 20 ,but was only able to get his own car just recently. He drives safe with me ,yet I worry about him when he is alone . #1 because he likes these fast car XBOX games and movies and video’s about “fast car’s“.

    • I was scared to death with my 1st two kids, not really even nervous with the 3rd. one.  I think they are all good drivers and each one had a minor fender bender early on to put the fear of God in them.  I guess lots of short errands for starters helped.  We left for a trip out west the day after I got my license and my parents treated me like a 3rd. driver, so by the time we returned I was very comfortable driving.

    • You get your licence at 17 here - Alice was cool I was worried as London is very busy and you have some real nutters - but actually in twon you can’t go fast and she did short journeys - now she has been all over the country and abroad at 22 ....

      What I did do was buy her a very small car so no gangs of girls or girls and boys being silly and then getting in trouble - I know friends who kids have had accidents and it was always with a group of kids in the car .....

    • I’m with Twinkie, you just have to trust and pray.  My kids all drove at an early age because they‘re farm kids and we live many miles from school with no bussing.  

      So far, of 4 kids, three have totalled a vehicle already. Two of the accidents were scrapes and bruises only thank God!  The third was a four day stay in the hospital and some lasting scars.

       The youngest is old enough to get his learner’s permit, but his behavior keeps getting him grounded, so at the rate he is going, he won’t be getting that any time soon.  I did let him drive me out to the gas station the other day and I’d say he’s a safer driver than any of my daughters.
