Exploring The Benefits Of Charter Schools

Hi there, I am Marissa Pollizo. I would like to discuss charter schools with you on my website. I recently began researching public, private and charter schools in my area. I was not happy with the education my children were receiving from the public school district. After several meetings with their advisors, I decided it would be better to put them in a different option. Unfortunately, private schools were way too expensive, even if I saved for the entire year. Instead, I chose charter schools and we couldn't be happier. I will discuss the various ways charter schools excel above the other options. I will also explore the teaching ideologies and techniques used in this type of school. Please come by often to learn more about charter schools. Thanks.


How To Prepare Your Child For Beginner's Driving Education

In 2020, 2,276 Americans were killed in an accident involving a teen driver. Teens are an especially high-risk group due to their limited experience behind the wheel and limited impulse control. With proper training, you can reduce the risk when your child gets behind the wheel. If you have a child reaching that age, learn about how to prepare your child for a beginner's driving education. 

1. Get Excited 

This is an exciting time! However, it can also be nerve-racking. Don't allow your anxiety to affect your teen. Stay positive and supportive throughout the process to keep your teen engaged, excited, and confident. To amp up the fun, try creating a fun playlist, playing realistic racing video games, and going to car shows. 

2. Go Over Driving Safety 

As driving is a serious responsibility, it's a good idea to start driving practice with an extensive lesson on driving safety. All children know not to drink and drive, but it's important to reiterate that information strongly. Create a plan to help them in case they ever feel compelled to drive drunk or get behind the wheel with a drunk driver. 

You should also cover the importance of staying alert while driving. Cell phone use or talking with passengers can lead to a lack of focus, which could then lead to an accident. Give your child tips on how to stay aware at all times. 

Finally, encourage your child to drive in a way that minimizes damage if there ever is an accident. For example, it's important to give other drivers a safe stopping distance and stay within the speed limit. 

3. Start With the Basics 

Before driving, teach your child the basics of cars and driving. You can do this using informational pamphlets and allowing your child to get comfortable behind the wheel of your family car. Encourage them to ask a lot of questions during this stage to cover as much information upfront as possible. 

4. Schedule Time to Practice 

When you get ready to practice driving, you'll get better results if you practice consistently. Compare schedules to set specific times for driving practice. While schedules change from time to time, it's good to have a basic time in place a couple of times each week. 

5. Gradually Practice New Lessons 

You don't want to start by driving a manual transmission on a highway. Start by driving in parking lots and slow streets before gradually learning new lessons as your child becomes more comfortable.
