    All teens need to read this. My biggest fear when thinking of buying my son a car. They think they are so invincible. I’ve pretty much decided against. He’ll have to buy his own car when he’s in his 20’s. Walk it out in the meantime. My nerves can’t handle it. I’m just saying. Ugghh #parenting #kids #life
