Parallel parking. . . does the photo, above, pretty much sum up your feelings about parallel parking?
In our small town, I haven't had to parallel park in many years.
Probably since I was in high school.
Yes, we do have parking spots downtown that are designed for parallel parking, only. But the downtown area isn't horribly busy except for a few times a year, so I can always find two open spots next to each other.
That's why I've got away with not needing to parallel park for so many years!
Things change when a high schooler is learning to drive, however! Even though my community doesn't require parallel parking on the driver license field exam, I still want my daughters to be able to parallel park and not be completely afraid of the process.
However, since I hadn't parallel parked in so many years, I decided not to teach my 15-year-old yet.
Then, my sister's friend posted a YouTube video for her that easily and quickly describes how to parallel park with ease.
This is ingenious! I'm thrilled to have watched this helpful, quick DVD. You can bet that I'll be showing this to my oldest daughter tomorrow so she can learn how to easily parallel park - even better than her mom.
Here's the helpful video. EnJOY your weekend - even if it requires you to do some parallel parking!
