I think for that they have to be teenagers, let alone possess a driver's license. Or at least find someone willing to drop them off in front of your house at 1:15 AM with lots of noise, not that I'm still bitter at being awakened.
My 13.5-year-old kid keeps pointing out that she only needs a driver's license for public
streets, not for private roads or driveways or parking lots. And that all the practice she gets now will pay off when she gets her learner's permit, pays for driver's ed, and pays to take the test. And that all the experience gained now will make her a smoother, more confident driver with her new license.
I just think of my high-school friend who learned to drive at the age of 14 and had been using his parents' car for months-- on public roads-- before they found out.
I've thought of a way to liven things up around here upon spouse's return. When this driving discussion rears its ugly head again I'm going to ask the kid if the same logic could apply to beer & cigarettes...
