4 Tips To Remember When Teaching Your Teen How to Drive ( Momimhar posted on November 16th, 2015 )

a-teen driving

Learning to drive can be a scary process for both you and your teen, especially if it is their first time behind the wheel. You might be used to the ins and outs of regular driving, but they will not have had your experience. It is important to stay calm and guide them as best you can. It might also be useful to brush up on your knowledge of road rules, just to make sure you aren’t giving out the wrong advice. If you’re still nervous at the prospect of supervising your teen’s first foray on the road, here are some things you should keep in mind.

Road Rules

It may have been a while since you’ve read the latest road rules and some things may have changed. They can sometimes be difficult to find and may vary from state to state, so make sure you double check before you launch yourself into a mountain of reading. You don’t want to be giving your teen the wrong advice, so if you think you might need to brush up on some of your traffic knowledge, visit blog post at GC Traffic Lawyers for a quick refresher.

Communication

Communication is one of the most important things to keep in mind when you are teaching someone to drive. Your student will most likely be more concerned than you are about making a mistake, so it is your job to make sure they feel as comfortable as possible. Do not yell, regardless of how tempting it might be to do so. Instead, provide helpful advice and constructive criticism so they can learn from their mistakes.

Start Simple

Starting off with simple, straight roads is a good way to get your teen’s confidence up. Learning to drive is just like learning any other new skill – start off simple, before progressing to more difficult maneuvers. Being able to do small things step by step will also be able to give them a little sense of achievement that can often go a long way.

Patience

Most of all, be patient with your teen. Raising your voice or being impatient with the speed at which they are driving or learning new skills will just stress them out even further, and the last thing you want is a stressed teenage driver. Your patience will definitely pay off eventually, so just keep that in mind.  The prospect of your teenager being on the road may be frightening, but if you can provide them the proper support and guidance, you shouldn’t be too worried. These are just some things you may want to consider if you are teaching your teenager how to drive, but also remember to tailor your approach to your child’s temperament. Good luck!

Me In My High School Uniform #TBT ( Momimhar posted on March 12th, 2015 )

My high school photo with batch mates.

My high school photo (that’s me no socks on) with batch mates.

I am feeling nostalgic these past few days.  After 21 years, my class in senior high school is planning to hold a reunion for the batch 1994 this coming May.  As a salutatorian, I should be attending the reunion.  But, unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this special event.  Sad, I know.

As I was talking with my former classmates, memories of my high school life were popping up in my head. I can say that high school life was the best part of my teenage life.  In the photo shows my batch mates.  Two of them are my neighbors – the girl beside me and the one on the far left.

Behind us is the elementary school and to our left are the junior, senior, and high school administration buildings.  The middle school buildings are located on top of the hill.  My neighborhood is located over the hill so when we go to and from school, we sometimes bypass the main road and take the short cut which is the going up and down the hill.  Going to school was fun because every students in my neighborhood walk to school almost at the same time 6 o’clock in the morning.  Flag ceremony is at 6:30 and classes start at 7. Then we go home for lunch at 12 noon, come back for classes at 1:00 P.M.  Then classes dismiss for the day at 5:30 in the evening.
