I am currently driving a 10-year-old Mercedes-Benz E350 with 81,000 miles and am interested in moving up to possibly Tesla’s model S. I love the E350 and have maintained it faithfully, and think it would be a good, safe car for a teen girl. Yes, I know I spoil her terribly, but from a practical point of view, what’s wrong with this idea? My wife has made it very clear that under no circumstances will our daughter be getting a Mercedes. I think she is relating back to her own days in high school where she got a beater VW. Should I just sell it and buy our daughter something else, or let her drive my old ride? — … [Read more...] about ‘Safe and ugly’ is the best choice for teen’s first car

Dear Carolyn: This week I was in a discussion with a bunch of other third-grade parents about what our kids know about sex. The vast majority of these parents said their children were "clueless" and they wanted to maintain their kids' innocence. I was one of the few people who had even had conversations with my child about reproduction, consent and puberty. Most were taking the "I'll talk about it when my child asks" approach. I don't go out of my way to raise this subject with my daughter, but I do look for appropriate opportunities to initiate these conversations. I don't know that a child always knows how to bring these topics up. We have talked about inappropriate touching and rape but also the fact that adults engage in certain activities because it feels … [Read more...] about Carolyn Hax: When is the best time to have ‘the talk’ with kids?
