IF YOU ONLY REMEMBER ONE THING, MAKE IT THIS:
Phone use while driving isn’t safe; plus you miss the chance to teach that little person strapped in the back!
You could use car time to catch up on phone calls OR connect with your child:
- Talk with your child about where you are going and what you will do when you get there.
- Sing your favorite song from high school. Can’t remember? Try this all-time favorite!
- Point out the trucks that you see. Guess what’s inside them and where they might be going.
The average American family spends ten hours per week in the car. Teaching your child while you’re on the go uses that time in the most important way of all!
