My car died in March, and I am using my 18-year-old son's Ford Ranger until the end of the school year so I can save up some money for a new car. My son is fine with me using the truck while he is in school, but is complaining because I drive, he and my 13-year-old daughter to school each morning and he has to ride in the middle between us. He thinks he should always drive when he is in it and never have to ride between his mother and sister. I think I am being fair because I let him drive home from school every afternoon and try to let him use it as much as possible on the weekends when me and my daughter don't have to go somewhere. I don't think it is fair for my daughter to have to always ride in the middle and feel it is safer for me to drive in the morning since we are usually in a hurry. I helped my son buy the truck and paid for about 1/3 of it since he was going to help drive his sister around. Do others think I am being fair and reasonable with my son or that I am being unfair and unreasonable and should let him drive all the time. I am getting really tired of hearing my son keep complaining when I am doing the best I can and feel I am being fair and reasonable. Do others think I am being fair and reasonable or that he has valid points and I should let him drive it whenever he is in it?
He has some valid points, let him drive, it’s 2/3 his truck. Get up a little earlier so the mornings aren’t as rushed, or all three of you get a few more things ready the night before. If your daughter wants a ride, she should not complain about sitting in the middle, it beats walking. He’s probably embarrassed showing up at school sitting between his mother and sister. Let him grow up, you are not being reasonable.
