'She loves to ride'
My entire life my mother made a very big deal about us not being on a motorcycle. Well, once or twice when I was young I do remember going on a moped or a side-car with my uncle, but my mother was so petrified of that, that she scared me into never wanting to ride one.
I vividly remember the time I was about 5 or 6 and she actually hit a man on a motorcycle by accident. He was making a turn right in front of her. We never got on a motorcycle and I would never let my kids get on one too.
Do, I judge anyone for their choices as a parent – sometimes let’s be honest. But, in this situation I have to say do what is best for your family.
Well, Mallory Torres remembers a time like most of us do, when children could walk home from school without their parents being told what to do and moms were busy worrying about their own families instead of being a sanctimommy!
“If you wouldn’t allow your child on the back of a motorcycle, then don’t… (but) don’t call us bad parents for enjoying putting a smile on our kid’s face every now and then with a motorcycle ride home after school.”
