How Parents Can Help and Encourage Their Learner Driver Teens

Most teens are excited to learn driving skills but some are reluctant to begin their lessons. Some fear letting their parents down by not learning quickly enough and others might simply have a fear of getting behind the wheel. It is the same for parents everywhere, no matter what country they live in, some kids simply don’t want to drive. If your child wants to drive but has a fear you need to help him or her overcome, here are some pointers that just might help them relax when learning.

Help Them Really Learn Theory

Many times we simply fear the unknown. This is totally new experience for your teen and with all the horrific accident scenes in films and on telly today, it’s a wonder that any teen would want to get behind the wheel! One thing that has proven to be successful in encouraging a learner driver is to thoroughly teach the theory behind each and every aspect of driving a vehicle. From keeping the car checked periodically to safety measures on the road, sites like Toptests that offer free practice tests can help to reassure them that they really do know their theory.

Begin with Off-Road Lessons

Of course the first step in preparing a learner driver is to get them past the theory test. So, once they’ve passed that portion of the driving test they are finally ready for behind the wheel experience. Here, you probably wouldn’t want to put an apprehensive student out on the road immediately, so many parents pick a large parking lot or park in which their teen can get a bit of preliminary practice in.

Keep it Calm and Light

Even kids who were never frightened of getting behind the wheel are affected by sharp criticism from mum or dad when they make an error in the very beginning. Not only does your child long to earn your respect but sharp words or loud reprimands can have them more nervous than needs be. If you want to encourage your teen to drive, stay calm and keep conversation to a minimum and very light when you must speak.

Reiterate the Importance of Staying Focused

More accidents happen today because of distracted drivers so make sure to teach your learner driver the importance of staying focused. Did you know that even you, as the adult licenced driver, can get a ticket and a hefty fine for talking on a mobile phone while a learner driver is behind the wheel? This should serve to set a good example for your son or daughter and is probably one of the reasons why the government made this law. Also, you need to stay focused on the road because even though you aren’t behind the wheel, you are the co-driver, the co-pilot, until your child passes the actual practical driving test.
Keep these few tips in mind when teaching your learner driver how to safely handle a motor vehicle. Learning to drive isn’t about who’s the coolest kid in town with the coolest looking car. Learning to drive is about getting where you are going safely, and as a parent, it’s up to you to make sure they can do just that.

PINCHme Subscription Box Review

Hello, everyone! I am so excited to share with you today, the box I got fro PINCHme. Yup, it's a box! I used to get a few samples from them before to try, but this time, they sent me a box full of goodies.

Here's what's inside my box.

 Let's get it all out one by one.

I am not gluten free, but this cereal is really delicious. I can have this for breakfast or snack everyday!

 We love carrot juice and V8 is our favorite brand.

Now, this is a very healthy and yummy snack. Perfect when my kids are in a hurry in the morning. They can just grab and eat it on their way to school.

I've never heard of this brand before, but I'm really glad I was able to try them. Both the body wash and lotion smell great and I love that my skin feels soft and smooth after using them. Definitely buying these products again.

I love that this moisturizer is oil free. I have oily skin, so I avoid using products that will make my face look shiny. This one is perfect for me.

Purell is a great brand and I've been using it for years. I love that this doesn't leave my skin feeling dry.

My kids loved this mouthwash!

 We haven't tried this, yet. But I love that this nighttime sleep aid is non-habit forming.

 My husband prefers floss picks than dental flosses. He says this is perfect for tight teeth like his.

 These are not for me, but my daughter grabbed the box as soon as she saw it.

A nail polish usually stays on my nails only for a day. This one lasted longer.  I love that it came with a bottle of top coat.

Overall, I love all the stuff in my PINCHme box and I can't wait for the next box.

They recently launched the PINCHme monthly subscription box where you will be able to try products from leading brands, completely for FREE. What's the catch? Zilch!

Product Review: Reno Rectangle by GlassesShop

I've been hearing a lot of great things about GlassesShop that is why I was very excited when I got an email from them for a possible collaboration. I just got my new prescription reading glasses, so I chose a gorgeous pair of sunglasses instead. It's the Reno Rectangle - Brown Stripe. A week later, a package arrived at my doorstep and it's the sunglasses that I picked for my review.

As you can see from the photos, the sunglasses look really nice. The frame looks sturdy and it has a beautiful design. I actually had a tough time choosing because their glasses frames are all beautiful. I can say that the frame of my sunglasses is made of high-quality materials. Look how trendy!

I love my sunglasses and if you would ask me if I would buy from GlassesShop, the answer is a big YES. I highly recommend their cheap glasses and prescription sunglasses. Now, here's the deal. If you click now and decide to purchase from them, you can use this special coupon code GSHOT50 to avail of a 50% 5discount on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded).

Thank you GlassesShop for making this post possible and providing me with the sample/s to facilitate this review.
