Well, it happened. I don't think it suprised Robin or I, but Jase got a speeding ticket. Can you say Dumb! We warn, and warn, and explain, and warn, and explain, and beg, and get reports from others, and explain.....and he keeps speeding by. Well he got tagged by officer ticke giver yesterday going 47 in our neighborhood down the long curve.
Robin and I drove there tonight and had a hard time getting to 47. Robin called the cop and talked to him tonight, and he explained that he really was going 47 and he could have arrested him and charged him. Luckely he gave him a civil citation that he can go to traffic school for and it won't show up on his record.
So, what do you do in a situation like this. He's a good kid. The officer even said so, but he just won't get it through his thick skull that we know things. I can't believe I was the same way!!! lol. Why do we do this as youngsters? We don't really listen to what those who have been through it before, and hear what they have to say. We don't take advantage of the experiences and the consequences that our elders went through. We have to experience some things on our own no matter what was said to us.
Really, please, share with me what we should do, how do we teach these lessons. Take the car away? how long? will that actually work? I resent ever being on restriction? Open for suggestions.It probably doesnt' help that we have him driving a bright red car!
Hey, have a great week,
