Confessions of a Rockin mom #10: Fears related to Down syndrome & driving
Another one of my early fears involves Everett’s ability or inability to drive his own vehicle someday. Driving is definitely a right of passage in the USA and I have such fond memories of getting the keys to my first car when I turned 16. In the early days, I was very fearful that Everett would never own and operate his own set of wheels like I did. Everett is 3 years old now, and I’ll have to confess, I don’t think I thought this fear all the way through. I mean, seriously…am I really supposed to hand over a set of car keys to EITHER of my children someday? This seems like a really scary thing to me. I think I’m cool if they wanna uber it or take public transportation for the rest of their lives ????.
