Health Tip: Parents, Set Rules About Driving for Teens
These guidelines will help them stay safe

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Teens need to stay focused and alert behind the wheel, and it's a parent's job to make sure teen drivers know the rules.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • Set a good example when you drive.
  • Establish clear, strict rules when your teen first begins to drive, such as no passengers and an early curfew. Discuss the penalties for breaking these rules.
  • Learn the rules and restrictions for teen drivers in your state, and enforce them.
  • Drive with your teen often to provide plenty of supervised time.
  • Make sure your teen's car is safe and equipped with air bags and other safety features.
  • Talk to your child's doctor about any medications he or she takes, such as ADHD drugs, and if they will affect driving.
  • Don't let your teen drive if you feel he or she is not ready.
