The Driving test.
Teaching a teenager to drive is as much a rite of passage for the Parent as it is for the kid. Contrary to what people think, driving is one of the most complex tasks a human will undertake in their lifetime.
Teaching your teen to drive can be a daunting task and oh so nerve wracking.
Patience and calmness are your best friend when teaching a teenager to drive.
In the words of Erma Bombeck ~ They seem to have adjusted the timetable for childbearing so that menopause and teaching a sixteen year old to drive a car, will occur in the same week. Sure felt like that, mind you I do not think at any age is a good age, to teach someone to drive.
Well now that we have mastered the steering, braking, cornering, parallel parking and all else that there is to the joy of driving, I am happy to say that our Son passed his driving test yesterday and now has his license to drive on his own.
He had to do a victory run yesterday on his own and said how strange it was driving all by himself. Probably no Mum nagging to slow down, and watch out.
Good luck Marcel and enjoy your driving.
Have you got any funny driving lesson stories to tell?
I hope that your week is going well
