    Start with parking lots, progress to small streets, then onward to highways early Sunday mornings when nobody else is on the road. Good luck!

    Take on the role of teaching her ONLY if you can do it without raising your voice in the car or saying things you may regret later. Parents are OFTEN NOT the best teachers for new drivers. Professionals do this well and without straining family relations. Also, many states offer a reduced rate of insurance for new yougsters if they have had professional instruction.

    The very best advice that worked both when I learned and now as my children are learning to drive: hire someone else.

    The stresses are high and an inadvertent comment could damage your teenagers self-esteem. Don't take the risk. Get a professional, I agree with Susan.

    My son is days away from his license. Normally, Id be anxious but gave him more lessons than required by the state and drive with him (me or his dad) quite a bit. He's a good drive who will mature over time. Seeing that has allowed me to relax more, which in turn, relaxes him when we're in the car.

    Won't it be great to have someone else who can run out or play chauffeur?

    Good luck...and remember no air braking! Dina

    You're more brave than I am! Might I suggest Xanax? :)

    I am teacher. I found a website with classroom management tricks and I follow that. The interest, abilities, and time constraints of your students have to be considered. My students finish their assignments on time and ask for some more. Log on to www.classroom-management.org for additional information.
