Talk to Them

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Parents 101 -

Sean Chan, co-di­rec­tor of Le Driv­ing In­struc­tors, says you shouldn’t be afraid to broach the sub­ject of driv­ing safety with your par­ents. “Fam­ily mem­bers are re­spon­si­ble for help­ing to keep one another safe. Sug­gest al­ter­na­tives to driv­ing and, if your par­ents choose to stop driv­ing al­to­gether, help them adapt to the change. Giv­ing up their car keys may make them feel like they’re los­ing their in­de­pen­dence, so help them see the ben­e­fits of tak­ing pub­lic trans­port – it will help them save money, min­imise park­ing woes, and walk­ing will ben­e­fit their health. If you feel that they could do with a driv­ing re­fresher course, en­gage an in­struc­tor for them.”
