N, 18, wants to go to a concert 2 1/2 hours from home. I have no problem with her going somewhere that is that far away ,but I do have a problem with her driving home at 11 pm for 2 1/2 hours. The band performing is from England and are only doing 15 cities in the US.
I haven't given her my final decision, but I am leaning towards saying No. I just see all the headlines in the papers with teenagers being killed on road trips and I know I'll worry. Part of me feels that at 18, though, she is old enough to make this decision. The other part of me knows that I still provide for all her needs including car insurance.
So, would you allow your 18 year old to go?
