Jane and mark had 3 kids penutbutter was the oldest at 10 (Middle) Jelly age 8 (left) and nut age 5 (right) they have to go to the store
Jane's phone rings. She knows she shouldn't pick it up but she has to find out what it says. "94 percent of teen drivers acknowledge the dangers of texting and driving, but 35% admitted to doing it anyway". its a text that says OK but her eyes are off the rode. She is replying. little does she know she is endangering herself her husband and her three kids. 21% of all car crashes were cell phone related
her husband knows she is making the wrong choice and wants to tell her that and speak up but he doesn't know how. Passengers are more likely to dye in a crash than the driver. Mark isn't the only one who knows it isn't rite her oldest peanut butter notices too. She knows its not OK but doesn't want to say something because she is afraid of getting in trouble.
What should he have done? 1. He could take a direct approach and just tell her strait out how he feels 2. He can also take the subtle approach like hinting to her "let me type for you" is an example. 3. Say something about getting ticketed by a cop 4. He could take a group approach with everyone in the car
What should peanut butter have done? KIDS, YOUR VOICE COUNTS! You should know if you speak up you are saving your life and everyone else in the car so you wont get in trouble! you should say something about it but be polite. Ex. "Mom i just learned about texting and driving at school and they said it wasn't safe so i would really like it if you waited until we were at the sore or let someone else type for you"
