How do you let go, when they are old enough to drive. To let go and let them get their license and let them drive without you there with them. One of my sons former classmates was killed in a motorcycle accident this afternoon. He was 19 years old, it was his fault he pulled out in front of an SUV on a beautiful day. I am sooo scared to let him drive alone, to drive at all for that matter.
I know I have to believe that my dh and I taught him the rules of the road, to be careful, to trust that we taught him everything he needs to know. I have to trust that the DL office people know what they are doing and not going to just give someone a license if they didn't pass or not fudge a score because they know someone.
3 times in the last week I have been stopped at a stop sign waiting to make a right turn from a side street and 3 times I have had stupid teenage girls cut to my left into the oncoming traffic lane, impatient with me for waiting for it to clear. How in the hell do they think they can make a left turn if I can't even make a right turn!!!!
I am still scared to death to let go!!!
