Not mean: On the contrary i suspect you're a loving, concerned mom who cares about your child and recognizes that driving is serious business that involves risks that are out of your and your child's hands. Not every teen is ready to drive at 16, and in general a teen's parent(s) are probably good people to make that determination.
