So much of how you deal with your child depends greatly on your individual child and their personality/temperament! It just shows that there is no one right way to deal with things because all kids are different and react differently. What works for one, does not work for another!

My son just got a speeding ticket. He's been driving for less than a year, 12 miles over the limit. He's one of these kids who thinks they are the worlds greatest drivers and likes to put down the others he see's breaking the law not really realizing that he does the same thing. He has been informed it will cost him money for the ticket and its coming out of his pocket. I want him to go to court on the ticket as not to have it listed on his insurance and I think the state will have a mandatory driving training class that he will be required to take. Its not to say I'm perfect as I have been stopped a couple of times and it's really brainless not paying attention. In my case its I'm not paying attention to what I'm doing. In todays cars it sometimes just doesn't feel like your speeding, your not trying to be reckless and drive crazy, its just not paying attention. Will add more as we work through this problem.

My now 25 year old got one when she was 17. She had to hire a lawyer and spend her whole summer earnings on doing so. Bummer for her. Never got another one.

Around here lawyers cost $69 for a speeding ticket.

So far so good...but if she did I wouldn't care, because you can bet she wouldn't wanna pay the fine more than once.
