On Cars for Kids, Accidents, Maturity, and Revealing Clothes

This parenting advice column counsels a father to be very careful before buying his son a car. We also weigh in on why parents don't mind their teen-age daughters wearing short shorts.

Stop here every day for a new question and answer, practical help for busy parents.

Question

My wife thinks we should buy our son a car, and I say no. Here is the story: We did promise our son that we would get him a car when he started college. But six months ago he was driving his mother's car, going 60 mph in a 40-mph zone. While turning he lost control and crashed into another car. His girlfriend needed surgery, and the driver of the other car went into a coma and almost died. My son got his license back, but I don't think he is responsible enough to drive. Going 60 in a 40 zone and not slowing down while turning sounds very immature. Should we get him the car?

Answer

Let's begin by talking about the word "promise." Good parents make only a limited number of promises, then try very hard to keep them. But precious few promises come without conditions. Suppose your boss promised you a promotion, then caught you dipping in the till. Is he morally obligated to promote you anyway? Few people would criticize the boss from backing away from that promise.

As such, your promise to your son does not constitute a guarantee. He demonstrated foolishness, and if you do not consider the boy mature enough to drive, then you cannot in good conscience purchase a car for him.

However -- the fact that your son acted stupidly six months ago and almost killed a man does not necessarily warrant a prolonged restriction from driving. Ask yourself a few questions:

We all suffer from lapses in judgment. Many of us (possibly most) have made mistakes like your son's as inexperienced drivers, but were lucky enough to avoid an accident. In this case, the aftermath was tragic. But you should not hold your son hostage to his past forever.

You are no longer obligated to buy your son a car. And if you are uncomfortable with the purchase, I suggest you don't make that purchase.

Question

I was at a flea market today. At one of the stands I saw a dad, mom and daughter who looked 16 or 17. She was wearing a black tank top and short shorts. Why do parents allow their daughters to dress like that in the open?

Answer

We live in a world where 80-year-olds wear halter tops and many parents desperately try to push their young children into modeling careers to boost household income. Decorum is in shorter and shorter supply.

There was a time when most parents would not have allowed a teen-age daughter to wear short shorts in public, and if they had, other people would have exhibited palpable disapproval. These days, few people think twice about such clothing choices.

The answer to your question is simple: Societal standards have changed, and most parents no longer consider such revealing clothes inappropriate.
