one thing i've learned that helps people to learn to drive well is to yell harsh and worthy criticism at them when they are driving.

That is only AFTER they are licensed.


But BEFORE they have got the CCW license.

Demonstrate how much better it is to take public transportation.
If you can get on a bus with no mad bombers. :idea:

WHAT is wrong with your daughter?
SMOETHING has to be!


Have you thought about an INSTRUCTOR? A TOUGH LOVE one?
One that will whack her upside the back of the head if she can't park?

Parking isn't the easiest maneuver, but damn it CAN be learned.

This is too weird. Apparently she is motivated enough to be distraught over NOT being able to pass, so I'd think a.....GOOD.... instructor could MAKE her learn how.

Really. This just doesn't make sense.

That last one shows parking around golf clubs so if she's BAD ENOUGH, maybe she could run over TDN.

blink:


She has a mental block when she reverses into a parking spot, she turns the wheel and usually goes the wrong way, gets frustrated, panics, cries, leaves the car. I mean, it's a fitty-fitty chance to get it right. :? blink:

Yesterday Mrs. CR gave it a go; daughter couldn't park and says "you got it I'm leaving". Mrs. CR gets out of the car..."nope, not my car, you got it" and left her. She finally parked it. I think she needs more of that until her mental block is unlocked.

Hallelujah!

She passed on the 11th time!

She took her 1st test in her new car (2007 VW Jetta). So, 'buying her a car that she was comfortable in' angle worked.

She was so nervous. It was a long drive up the leeward coast to Waianae hearing about her nerves.

On the way back we got stuck for an hour in traffic. We had pineapple popsicles to celebrate.

I can now die in Seoul under an airburst and know that my life's mission is complete.

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

Yeah, she said I was the best dad ever blah, blah, blah, for putting up with this for three long years. Much better than last November's failure where I was excoriated for my white privilege....(?) I reminded her of that today. She said she was real sorry and didn't know where that came from. "I like white people" she said with a grin. Then we got into smoe conversation about her work and how smoe people criticize and blame white people for everything. She said they're real dumb-masses.

Being a parent sure is a challenge.
