Giving Up the Driver’s Seat

Jan 29, 2019 / Life Stage: Pre-Teens and Teenagers     

My friend’s 15-year-old just got her restricted driver’s license.  You know what that means.  Old dad had to white knuckle it from the passenger’s side.   Talk about nerve-wracking!  But believe it or not, he said the worst part wasn’t the close calls with curbs,  cars and trees… it was realizing that his little girl was growing up… and that he needed to start letting go.   Allowing our children to begin taking control of their own lives can feel like a bumpy ride… but letting go is the only way they’ll ever find the road to independence.  For more on this topic, go to my blog MarkMerrill.com.
