Sharing the family car with three kids

From elsewhere in The Post: Three teens, all licensed drivers, are home for the summer and must share a car. Their parent asks advice columnist Marguerite Kelly how the kids should plan to pay for gas and equally share the vehicle.

“When they have a specific problem — like scheduling the use of the family car — ask them how they’re going to solve it, rather than telling them what to do, but don’t expect perfection,” says Kelly.

Read Kelly’s suggestions for making sure these teens don’t drink and drive, come home at a decent time each night and never bring the car home on an empty tank.
