Don't yell at her if she does something wrong. My father learned that was not the best thing to do real quick.
My mom found out the hard way as well. Probably the only time I've scolded my mother without her scolding me back. **** near went off the road when she started yelling.
My mom tried to teach me to parallel park, unsuccessfully. She set up trash cans for me to park between, then tried to motion me in between them. When I got too close for her comfort she slammed her hands down on the side of the trunk and screamed "YOU JUST KILLED SOMEONE!"
Probably not the best education method.
I went out with my dad that night and he said something like "Line yourself up with the first car, reverse to the point where your front is in line with their steering wheel, then turn the wheel 3/4 of the way to the right and back into the spot. As your front is passing their car, turn it the other way."
Did it perfectly the first time. You can guess which parent I got along with.
