I know there are lots of Mothers of teenagers out there, SO I want to know how in the world you got past this worry. My son is 16 and he just got his DL on wed. We live in the country and he has been driving himself to FB practise twice a day since. The past two evening I asked him to be home right after practise, just before dark. But tonight being his first friday night with his liscense I told him he could stay out until his curfew, which is midnight. It took quite a while to get used to him being out with friends until 10 or 12 and being brought home by other kids. Now that he is driving it is a whole new worry So here I am up 2 hours past my bedtime praying for his safe return and trying not to drive myself nuts!!
