Why I'm Not a Fan of Online Driver's Education Classes for Teenagers by Holly Budde
My daughter will be eligible for driver's education and her subsequent permit in one week! All I hear is how she can’t wait to drive. Well, guess what? Me either! She can take herself and occasionally pick up her little sister for me. In fact, I'm counting down, too! My mom taxi is due a break!
The deal is, I'm making her sign up for the course in person. She's mortified I won’t let her take it online. "Everyone else just does online." Yeah? tough! Instructor-based or no permit! I want her to learn from a certified instructor she doesn’t know, who she'll respect and listen to. Of course she can drive with me, too! But I want to know someone she can't ignore or argue with taught her the rules of the road. It’s my little way of feeling like I did all I could to keep her safe.
