    RSVP @acarreno78

  3. My kids aren’t quite to driving age yet, but it seems like every time I turn around, they’ve gotten exponentially older. I’ll definitely be there.

  4. My oldest is 12 but I practically hyperventilate every time the subject of teen driving comes up. I think attending this Twitter party would certainly help put my mind at ease.

  5. I’m all about educating kids (no matter what age) about driving safety or just staying safe even as a passenger! It’s never too early to start talking about it!

  6. Reesa Lewandowski says:

    Such an important topic. I have a long way to go until my kids can drive, but I am eager to learn all I can as soon as I can!

  7. This will be a great conversation to join in on. The topic is super important with all of the kids using devices now. Those prizes are great!

  8. I just wish I could get my teen to show an interest in driving lol. She’s almost 18 and has no desire to learn. The Twitter party sounds like a lot of fun with great info and prizes!

  9. RSVP @Baby2ishere

  10. Such an important topic that some kids do not take seriously enough! Sounds like a great party full of tons of great info!

  11. This is a great topic for teens! Safe driving is very important for teens to learn!

  12. This is such an important topic. My children are not driving yet but I have teen relatives that are and will pass along this information!

  13. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    I think it is a great idea to have a Safe Teen Driving Twitter Party. I have two teenage drivers in my home. We have a strict rule about cell phones in the car.

  14. Jennifer Davis @abbynaverysmom says:

    This is such an important topic! Safe driving is so important with all the distractions among us, glad you are bringing awareness to this!

  15. Our Family World says:

    Good idea and topic! My teens are still not want to drive. But This is gonna be helpful for others.

  16. My daughter is 15 and before I turn around she will be ready to drive! Definitely going to be at this twitter party- I can use all the tips I can get!

  17. Sounds great! My oldest is 13 and will be driving before i know it so this is something I need to be learning about. Sounds like a great party! I will have to try to join in!

  18. @correyhope rsvp

  19. RSVP @marbb05

  20. My parents would have murdered me if I had driven distracted. Somehow they always knew…

  21. KIm Barnes says:

    I will be going the chat @mom2sonsX3

  22. RSVP @mummadear

  23. Kiddo is almost 12 so there are a few more years left before its time for her to drive. Sounds like it will be a great Twitter party with a lot of benefits.

  24. This is super important because a lot of teens and even adults don’t seem to understand the importance of safety while driving especially with the distractions of cell phones and friends talking in the car. I didn’t get to make the twitter party because I wasn’t home but I hope people learned a lot from it and will have talks with their families about safe teen driving.

  25. It’s really amazing that you’re joining this. It’s important to remind and educate our teens about driving safely, especially these days! We just can’t be too safe when it comes to allowing our teens to drive on their own.

  26. That texting and driving thing drives me crazy. It only takes a split second, but kids are so comfortable texting, they think they can do it without problems. And adults too! I’ve seen a semi driver weaving and texting!
