“… already worrying about it.”
Question: Dear Mike: We’re still a few years away from driver’s ed. but I’m already worrying about it. Is there anything I can do now to prepare?

Answer: Dear Becky, Absolutely! I wish more parents were thinking ahead and taking this really seriously, because what you do now can make a difference. The last lesson of our “Roadworthy” DVD is called Start Early & Never Stop, and it explains quite a few easy ways that you can start preparing your younger children long before they’re ready to get a learner’s permit. For example, one of my pet peeves as an instructor is 16 year old kids who don’t know the names of the streets near their house. That’s a very basic thing that can create a lot of confusion in a car, but it’s very simple for you as a parent to teach now.
