The media has been in charged of telling us about all the dangerous and dirty things our teenagers are doing. But the truth is that it might not be as bad as we imagine. Of course we have to keep an eye on them and have a good communication, it’s also important to teach them about responsibility and trust. Maybe with this, we can have a better idea what is our teen son or daughter really doing instead of assuming they are doing wrong things. Read this note at the Working Mother blog about the teen fads you should be aware of and make your own judgment. But anyway, keep in mind that the most important thing you can do is to build a good relationship with your son or daughter, shoe interest in what is happening in their life and support them no matter what.

To be able to drive inOntario, you need to get a G class license. The process to get it is the following:
- To be able to apply for this license you need to be at least 16 years old, pass an eye test and a written test abouttherules oftheroad and traffic signs.
- Once you pass the written test you’ll get a G1 license that will only allow you to drive withthecompany of a fully licensed driver with at least 4 years of experience.
- After at least 12 months withtheG1, you can have a road test in order to gettheG2 learning license that will allow you to drive on your own for 12 month before you can be fully licensed.
- If you want to get a full G license you have to pass through the G1 and G2 learning levels and pass 2 road tests. You have 5 years to go through this “graduating license” process, if not, you will have to start all over again.

If you come from another province, state or country and you have a license, you can use that license in Ontariofor 60 days, after that you need a license from Ontario. You can exchange an out-of-province license if you come from other provinces or from certain countries with an exchange agreement with Canada. If you come from a country without an exchange agreement, you have to show a proof of driving experience in English or French (you can get that from your country’s consulate or embassy). This will not give you thefully G license, but will help you to go from G1 to G2 faster. More information here: http://www.ontario.ca/driving-and-roads/exchange-foreign-drivers-licence
