Maureen Ross O’Connell- Parents Who Text While Driving
If you did not see the editorial in the Springfield Republican on Thursday, May 24th about parents texting and driving, take a minute and read it. This topic is so important that we feel a need to highlight it again. The opening statement in the article speaks volumes. If we as a society don’t see the dangers and change our behavior, we will have an epidemic as deadly as drinking and driving. If you text and drive as a parent, you can rest assured your children will do the same when they get their licence – PERIOD. A friend of mine told me that she changed her behavior by putting her phone in the backseat while she drives. Whatever it takes to change the behavior – JUST DO IT – and do it now before it’s too late.
