Lets say you have a kid who just got his/her drivers license at age 17 and is currently in his/her junior year of high school. Do you give him/her a car to use?

My grandparents raised me. We lived about 25 minutes away from school. I was in so many extracurricular activities that they couldn't wait until I started driving. They bought my great-grandma's 1969 Buick Electra for me. (She wasn't driving anymore.)

No, if they want a car, they can pay for it

I bought my kids a car to share. It got a lot of use.

My parents did, and I plan to for my child as well.

To *use* to go to and from school and help with family errands, definitely. I have three grown children and did not *give* any of them a car...they earned the money to buy their first vehicle.

They will use my car when I'm not unless they buy their own car, or I end up being rich.

I read that as giving them their own car...no! I will provide a car they can, with adult supervision, not to use as they like.

I got an old car when I was a teen. Ran fine but was a tank. Didn't get my first new car till I was out of college and had worked for a while. My teenage niece was given a new car which she has already wrecked multiple times. I'm not her parent, but she would've lost car privileges and footed at least some of the bill.

Sure, assuming I trust them and they're on my insurance policy. My parents let me use all of their cars, and I got my own quite young.

I ask this question because I am thinking back to how my parents didn't and how I just did for my daughter :-)
