One of the biggest reliefs of your child getting older is no longer having to be their on-call chauffeur. Sports practices, friend’s houses, school, and so on. Odds are, you’ve been your child’s main source of transportation for most of their life. But now, as they approach that golden age of 16, they have the opportunity to earn a bit of freedom by getting their driver’s license. That is, unless you decide to send them an Uber instead.
That’s right. There has been a growing trend of parents using Uber as a means to shuttle around their un-licensed teen children.
The idea of using cab to shuttle your child around sounds like a great idea and a great use of modern tech. But unfortunately, there are several reasons why it would be much better to have your teen learn to drive and get their driver’s license.
