Carpool Etiquette for Parents

A carpool that helps your kids get to and from school and extracurricular activities is a great way to save time and money—something that is important to nearly everyone today. However, whether you are the driver or your kids are just riding, it is important you follow these simple etiquette tips.

  • Make a plan about the radio. You do not want to play a station that could be offensive to some parents.
  • Decide what to do about missed days. You do not want the carpool to fall apart due to one or two unreliable parents.
  • If it is not your day to drive, make sure you have your kids ready to go in plenty of time so you don’t hold up the carpool.
  • It is normally best to have a no-eating policy. That way there is no issue with parents who may not want food in their car.
