You should always leave loved ones with loving words. You never know when it may be the last time you see them.
Teenagers learn a lot by observing you. Make sure your driving behaviors are in line with what you expect from them. This means being mindful of speed limits, road rage and eliminating distractions such as electronic devices while driving. They will model their driving after yours.
Do not accept unacceptable behavior.

Teach your kids that in life as an adult one must read carefully anything that requires your signature. Remember the big print gives and the small print takes away.

There are several strategies you can use to build a positive relationship with your children. Create a loving home by playing with your children and expressing affection. You need to give them attention no matter how busy you are. Be consistent with schedules and activities so children know what to expect. Respond to similar behaviors in similar ways. Be flexible and willing to involve kids in the decision making process.
Often we are asked why teenagers tend to do things that we would consider dangerous to themselves without any fear. At the same time, most rational adults realize the consequences and would not do these same acts themselves. In fact many teenagers tend to not realize how unsafe their acts are such as dangerous skateboard and bicycle jumps, speeding in a car, riding in the back of a pickup truck, and etc. The reason is that the brains of adolescents are different than the brains of adults. As adolescents get older, maturation happens from the back to the front of the brain with the frontal lobe being the last part of the brain to mature. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls judgment and insight. This means that adolescents are wired to be quick learners with limitations on their common sense and sense of danger. Unfortunately it is a lot easier to take risky chances when you are wired to be impulsive and confident.
Happy Yom Kippur to all of our Jewish members of the Y3K Tutor In Your Home family.
Your child takes in cues from you. If you are excited about school, they will be too.
