For parents, skyrocketing gas price is bad news. Why? Because there is soccer or baseball practice to go to, ballet lessons, play dates, and a lot of activities that goes with having kids younger or older. The solution to this problem is carpooling. This is one way to ensure that you will save gas, letting your kids ride with teammates or neighbors to practice. To keep your mind at ease though choose somebody you know like close friends or even relatives who also have kids, whom you can trust to drive your kids to their activities and at the same time keep an eye on them. This is what Divide The Ride is offering to parents. It is a free resource to help parents communicate with each other and organize a carpool with their kids. The good thing about this is you don't have to connect with parents you don't know or aren't familiar with. You can call up friends who have kids with maybe the same activities as your kid and talk about carpooling for the benefit of everybody. You will then get an email from dividetheride.com to tell you about the schedule and everything should be a breeze. You can do this not only to save money but to save your sanity as well.
