Common Sense (Repeat As Necessary)

Today's lesson is to be kind and understanding as a dad, but use common sense ... and then use it again. No doubt, Orlando's Jerome Broughten made the right call when he said his 14-year-old son could not drive his sister and brother to a local bodega. Good on you Jerome.

HOWEVER, while girls do grow up and mature faster (usually) than boys, it was still a poor choice to say if anyone was going to drive the siblings it would be the 13-year-old daughter. She crashed the SUV into a tree in the store's parking lot, injuring her brother (leaving the 8-year-old sister unscathed) and earning both herself and her father state charges.

Don't kids ride bicycles anymore?
