If I had teenagers (and maybe even without them)

We all know that texting while driving is bad. We KNOW its dangerous. We’ve seen the commercials, heard the horror stories, and there is NO DOUBT in anyone’s mind that it should never, ever be done.

Yet…most of us admit to doing it, at least occasionally.

Nearly half of commuters self-reported texting while driving in a recent poll1, and 43% of those who did called it a “habit.” Commuters are texting and driving even more than teens – 49%1, compared to 43%2.  And the problem has gotten worse.  Six in 10 commuters say they never texted while driving three years ago.

It is REALLY hard to resist that temptation when you hear that “ping”. I have trouble doing it (I now turn my phone OFF when in the car) but I know that a teenager often feels indestructible and perfectly capable of managing it.

I found this new device on the internet that I would most certainly purchase if I still had teenagers (or if I knew that me, my spouse, or one of my children had trouble with this issue):

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!

I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
