On Thursday, June 20, with the summer season in full swing, please join NSC and Be Smart. Be Well.® for Safe Teen Driving Day on Facebook to hear from teens and leading experts from the Centers for Disease Control and the National Safety Council about safe teen driving.
Learn how you can be the key to getting teens to drive phone free, and staying safe on the roads this summer.
For many teens, the arrival of summer means the end of high school and the beginning of a new chapter of life. Teens use their spare time to socialize with friends, and safety often is one of the last things on their minds.
On Sunday, June 16, millions of children will participate in family festivities to honor their fathers. The day will be filled with love and laughter, and memories will be made by many.
Sadly, some fathers won’t get to have that experience. For these fathers, the day will be spent reflecting on the past, on favorite memories that warm their hearts. For these dads, Father’s Day will never be the same.
