Talk to Your Teen

Parents,  as we move into the spring time, we know teenagers will be distracted with thoughts of proms and graduation.  This is the time to sit down with them and discuss the dangers of texting and driving.  Kids think they are invincible.  They are not.  A recent story on NBC discussed a teen driving while texting to a pal on Facebook.  She slammed into the back of a tanker truck, killing her instantly.  The investigation revealed she never hit her brakes.  Sadly, her last text was “I can’t discuss this now.  Driving and facebooking is not safe! Haha”
