Santa and the Elf on the Shelf may be watching your kids.
But don’t forget that your kids are watching you. As soon as a child’s car seat is moved to face forward, they start learning how to drive. This is why it is so important to model distracted-free driving at all times.
Don’t fall into the ‘do as I say, not as I do’ trap. Model distracted-free driving for your kids – this means don’t eat or drink while driving, don’t apply make-up while driving, don’t reach for things while driving, and don’t text while driving.
Keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road. Remember those little people in the backseat are watching you very closely. Use this link to learn about modeling good driving habits and the End Distracted Driving organization.
