driving the non-driving teen.

I made a light hearted post about keeping track on the odometer of how much you drive during the summer and got to surprising responces.... which makes me wonder:

Do you drive your non-driving teen around during the summer?
Do you have busing in your area that your non-driving teen can use?
Do you have places that your non-driving teen can ride a bike to?

What kinds of activites does your non-driving teen particapate in during the summer and how does he/she get there?

  • Mine gets a monthly bus pass so i can not drive her around. She goes to the library and we have memberships for the zoo and Childrens' Museum that she can go to on her own. Otherwise she goes to spend time with her friends at their homes, the mall, where ever.

  • Yes, I drive my daughter to the mall, movies, friends house, sleepovers, martial arts classes, and my son to All Stars baseball 6 days a week and to his friends, and most of the above places with his sister. My daughter turns 16 in a couple of weeks and will start driver's ed, but it'll be at east 4 months until she can get her license. I would much rather drive them around to activities than have them home on computers and such...but when we are home, we are often in the pool....and many times friends are over.
    We have no buses or other public transportation here, but we do take advantage of carpooling with other parents.
    It takes a village....
