Kids learn anything easily and fastly as their brains are very capable. Teaching about cars will help them get familiar with the vehicle and cultivate their interest in learning driving. Without fail, teach the below points about the car to your kids:
Safety: The first and foremost thing of a dear one is safety. So teach them how to use the car safely. Stress the importance of seat belt, door lock, airbag etc. Train them every safety measure right from opening the door without banging on anything.
Value of money: While telling about the car make them realize the value of money. Brief on the purchase price and maintenance cost of the car. Talk about monetary aspects like insurance, cost of the license, fuel saving etc. Make them list out cheaper alternatives of transport depending on travel need. Make them visit offroadhoverboard and such sites to help them explore.
Responsible use of car: Let them know the responsible use of the car. Explain the negative impacts of rash driving. Also, help them know how they should handle traffic rules. Stress them to use the car at reasonable speed and respect and be concerned to the other commuters especially emergency vans.
Allowed area: As long as the kids are not of the age eligible for driving, let them know which parts of the car they can operate and explore. As kids, they will be eager to try things inside the car. Handling a music system is not a problem. But ensure that they stay away from the steering wheel.
Impact of the wrong operation: Teach them how wrong use of the parts will affect the car.
Basic simple maintenance: Kids above 10 years can be taught simple maintenance techniques like Checking air level in wheels, fuel indicator, cleaning, checking oil level etc.
