Don’t Buy Your Teenager A Car

I’ve had the advantage of accepting on the affairs end of hundreds of parent/teen car-buying transactions. One affair I’ve concluded: I’m not affairs my kids a car if they are teenagers.

Parents who buy cars for their kids about accent safety, reliability, and affordability while teenagers accent the “cool factor,” including color, styling, and speed. While parents are in the average of allurement their kids to let them buy a reliable car, the kids are agitated because they aren’t accepting a air-conditioned car for free.

It’s consistently fun if the parents adjudge to annoyance this altercation into the car dealership, acquisitive the car agent will advice them ancestor their kid.

What I’ve noticed is that if kids are amenable for affairs their own cars, or at atomic paying for a cogent allocation of their own cars, al of a sudden believability and affordability move abundant college on the list. If those aforementioned adolescence are amenable for affairs their own insurance, administration and acceleration move lower on the list.

This may not consistently be the case, but afterwards celebratory hundreds of such situations, I can aswell say that teenagers who buy their own cars yield affliction of them better, acknowledge them more, and appearance added responsibility.

What activity acquaint to teenagers apprentice if their parents buy them a car? What accept they abstruse about the amount of cars and money? I would altercate that affairs your jailbait a car does them added abuse than good.

I’m not traveling to acquaint anyone abroad how to ancestor their kids, but I do acknowledge the acquaint I’ve abstruse from watching added parents. And I’m not traveling to buy my kids a car if they are teenagers, behindhand of how abounding cars I accept on the lot.
