  • They have free will, I guess and after they hit a certain age, can hide a lot. Dateline NBC had a show about teens (secretly videotaped) who would text while driving after being told many times not to, teens getting into cars with those who had been drinking (same thing, the parents had given them other options and told them never to do this).
