5 Steps to Helping Your Kid Become an Even Better Chino Valley Teen Driver
When you have a Chino Valley teenage driver in your household, you may sometimes feel like the world is about to end. You’ve seen all the movies and television shows, and you believe if you deny your kid the right to go out and have fun with their friends that, someway, somehow, they’re going to get their hands on a pair of keys and the consequences will be disastrous. That doesn’t mean, of course, that you should just give in and let your teen driver do whatever they want whenever they want. There are five easy steps you can put into action in your household that will make it easier for you to sleep at night and to let your keys go instead of keeping a death grip on them every time your kid wants to go out with the car. Check out these steps on how to help your kid become a better teen driver so you don’t have an aneurysm.
- Drive with your teen driver regularly to make sure that you feel comfortable with their driving skills. When you ride along with your teen, you’re letting them take control and you’re getting the opportunity to see how they handle driving. When you drive and have your teen along for the ride, you have the opportunity to set the example you want them to follow.
- Give your teen the ability to use the car. This doesn’t mean that when your teen wants to go out on a Friday night that you have to give them the keys to the car. However, you can give your teen driving freedom and time to practice by asking them to do the grocery shopping or run to the pharmacy, or even to go put gas in the car.
- Don’t freak out when your teen makes a mistake. Every driver gets into a fender bender, hits a barrier backing out of a parking space or receives a speeding ticket at some point. Make sure your teen understands and accepts the consequences, but don’t freak out.
- Be a better driver. If you want your teenage driver to be a better driver, you have to be a better driver. Pull out those driving lesson DVDs.
- Talk to them. Talking to your teenager sounds like a novel, and impossible, idea. But when you talk to them about your expectations, they really do hear you, even if it doesn’t seem like it.
