The keys to the car…

When you give a teen the keys to a car:

  • You discuss responsibility.
  • You take the time to teach them.
  • You show them the different features and controls.
  • They have studied and passed a test of basic knowledge.
  • You limit the amount of time or how far they can go.
  • You discuss which types of roads to drive on or avoid.
  • You feel confident in their ability to handle the responsibility.

Should it be any different when you give them their first digital device?
