Parental Influence


Whether you are out walking, cycling or driving your actions are picked up by children. It has been shown the way we act influences their future behaviour. We all set out to show a good example but often it's the small 'ad lib' comment they will pick up on rather than the message we are really trying to put over!

Nobody thinks they are a bad driver. Most people would say they are above average but how would the judges in the back seat mark you? We should always be aware of who is listening!

A good example of this is highlighted in the recent campaign, Kids in the Car.
