Allstate’s “Good Hands for the Good Life” is a new motto that aims to covey optimism and celebration rather than fear. Of course, we all face fear and risks every day, but we should not let that hold us back from making our lives the best they can be. Allstate Good Life works hard to help its customers build more of the good life.

As a mom of four kids, I feel that fear every day. Two of my kids are of driving age (20 and 16 years old), and another is just about there (14 years old). When I think about my kids being out on the road in a car on their own – that scares me so much! So many things could happen. As a parent, it’s my job to teach my children the best I can and make sure they are prepared for any situation. Education and instruction, along with lots and lots of practice, ensures that they are actually ready for the responsibility of getting a driver’s license. Driving is a privilege so I also have to make sure my kids know there are consequences if they do not follow the rules – both the rules of the road and the rules set forth by myself and my husband.
It has been difficult for me to hand over the keys and let my kids take the driver’s seat. But, learning to drive is a rite of passage for teens. I cannot let my fears get in the way and hold my children back. I have to trust that everything will be okay and join them in celebrating this milestone in their lives. This is a good and exciting time for our family and just one way that we are blessed to have a good life!

What about you? I would love to hear about your own good life story. Feel free to share in the comments below what’s good in your family right now.

My son was legally able to drive at 16 in our state, but I went with my instincts and had him practice for another year before letting him get licensed. Now he's the best driver in the family BY FAR.

Oooohhh....scariness! Kids behind the wheel can always be frightening, but I am glad to hear that you are preparing them well!

I totally get that fear. I have 2 young drivers and one driving very soon. When my 26 year old calls me from his car, I refuse to talk to him until he's not driving. :)

I would be scared too when the time come that my kid will be driving on his own. He is still very young to drive but I am sure his dad will prepare him well too.

I am definitely nervous about my kids driving, but I try not to worry too much. But I remember when I first started driving, so of course I do worry some!
