We were at Legoland this week and my children wanted to ride the electric cars. Before a child was allowed in the car, their picture was taken for a “Driver’s License”. Upon receiving this Driver’s License (which was nothing more than a business card with some blanks), my youngest son’s entire demeanor changed. He felt responsible and trusted. He wanted to make sure he obeyed each and every rule because he had been entrusted with this license. This small card was the highlight of his day and really boosted his ego.
You never know what is going to click with children. This license did, so I decided to use it for my benefit. I created a “Driver’s License Safety Test”.
If a child passes, they will be rewarded a “Driver’s License for bikes and scooters“. It’s proof that they know the safety rules of riding a bike/ scooter. They understand the license can be revoked if a rule is not followed. To have your very own Driver’s License can be a rite of passage, a step up in responsibility which develops confidence.follow The House of Hendrix below, and if you haven’t already, Like us here on Facebook
