He gasped and said mommy you aren't supposed to text in the car! I told him he was right and I was sorry but that ms X sent me a text asking where we were and I needed to respond. I asked him where he learned that and he said his teacher told the class that if they saw someone texting they should tell them not to text in the car.
I don't really like the idea of the school teaching kids to shame their parents, I remember being taught to shame my parents for smoking and that wasn't my job or place.
I was stopped at a red light due to traffic during rush hour, nothing on my part and its not illegal to text and drive or sit at red lights and text in Houston Texas. I was not breaking any laws.
The reason I sat through 4 lights was because of traffic people. It wasn't because i had my head in my phone. Houston traffic at 530 on a week night is horrific. I sat at the light because there was a ton of cars in front of me and there is no way a turn lane will let 20 or so cars through at one time. Again the light changed 4 times because of traffic, nothing that I did or didn't do.
