Getting a Driver's License

Dr. Laura,

I listen to your show every night on the way home from work (repeat from the day). The other night, I was listening to the woman who had an almost 16 yr old son who would soon be getting his driver's license and his friends were being given cars for their 16th birthday...

It never ceases to amaze me the mind set of parents today - including that woman caller who never thought not to let him get his license because of his attitude, grades, and disrespect. I raised 4 children - 3 being triplets - and just because they were 16 didn't mean an automatic license... 2 got them at 16, 1 at 17, and 1 had to wait until he was 18 and of legal age... No way was I going to let him out on the street to drive...

No wonder the kids are out of control these days with parents who have no common sense... Parents, wise up, take parenting classes because you sure don't know what the hell you're doing...

Thank you Dr. Laura...
