    Thanks katonca! :) Under my monetary circumstances right now...which you're familiar with...William will definitely have to get a job and pay slightly more than half for the insurance increase and save up for a car! He isn't complaining or giving me a hard time about that! (y) :) My '89 Cutlass Ciera has to last me a long time to come...I can't chance it getting wrecked! :eek:

    The first car i used was my moms 96 Chevy Beretta which i labeled as Satan's Car because it was red, the last 3 numbers in the VIN were 666 and it always had something wrong with it:D

    Just remind him that when his buddies are in the car there's no horsing around.

    I am pretty strick when it comes to driving. I always told my sons to be careful and no speeding - over and over and over again.

    My youngest was coming back from a church meeting this spring - on a four lane highway - and got busted for dong 86 mph. He said he just wasn't paying attention. That doesn't make it any more understandable I told him.

    He paid the fine, lost his lic for 1 month and was not allowed to drive our "good" car anymore.

    katonca: 86 in what speed limit zone? :eek:

    William and I have discussed just about everything under the sun when it comes to safety in a car while he is driving...no fiddling with the stereo/CD player...no eating...no cellphone usage...no friends at first...obeying all traffic laws...respecting other drivers...avoiding those who commit road rage...etc!

    I can see why you are nervous about your son driving. Just don't treat him like a baby.

    After I got my license, I didn't drive that much for a good 4 to 5 months. I was scared to drive. I wasn't worried about my ability, but the stupid drivers around me. I drove with my parents a lot in the car, and they felt comfortable with my driving. I started to drive more by myself and enjoyed it.

    Now I drive a lot, the more driving, the better you get. Just like with almost anything.

    Just remember, he is 16 and I'm sure he is nervous already. No need to put more stress on driving than what is already there.

    My dad still gives me pointers when I'm driving and he is in the car. He is an awesome driver, as he drives A LOT. On Monday he drove 1090 miles.



    Make sure he knows driving is a privilege and not a right. (y)
