Tire changing and checking oil levels do not require expert instruction, but it is a fundamental skill that everyone should learn. It is not rocket science, but rather a few techniques that can be learned through basic practice. Although people learn these skills as they grow older and gain the ability to drive, what about the children who remain at home and have no knowledge of such things? In this article, we'll look at why schools should teach children how to change tires and check oil levels.
Girls Should Not Be Dependent
Boys naturally learn such skills as they move out or stay close to people who drive, but girls frequently lack basic car technical issues and solutions. This is because girls aren't naturally drawn to mechanics and cars as kids, so they don't show much interest in them. These are culturally conditioned behaviors that have been practiced for a long time. Being reliant on others when you have the ability to do it yourself is a snag in one's freedom.
In schools, children should be taught basic life skills on an equal footing. Some mechanical skills should be taught to senior high school students in their teens, and early mechanical lessons should be given to junior high students. It is critical to emphasize the importance of girls learning these skills because if a lady is driving alone and gets stuck due to a tire puncture, she will not have to wait for a male passerby to help her change the tire if she knows how. Even if she doesn't know how, her children, who recently learned how to change a tire at school, can assist her in changing the tire on the highway alone.
In Cases Of Emergency
The situation in Iraq can change in hours or minutes. Imagine your tire is out of shape and you need to relocate to a safer location in an emergency. Will you gather your belongings or get busy changing the tire at that point? But suppose your children know how to do it. While you are gathering your belongings or protecting your family, your children can quickly change the tire. There could also be other types of emergencies, such as getting stuck on the side of the road and feeling ill while your tire blows out. In such a disaster, your children will once again be your saviors if they had a chance to learn how to change tires in their schools.
Safety From Strangers
If you don't know how to change a car tire because it was never taught to you in school, you might ask a stranger for assistance in an emergency. In an emergency, asking a stranger can sometimes put you in another emergency. To avoid this, teaching young children how to change tires can help them stay safe in an urgent situation. Schools all over the world took similar steps to begin teaching children these fundamental skills. If schools take this step, the next generation will save a lot of time managing their own affairs.
Iraq has a number of holy sites, and people from all over the world travel there to visit them. Visitors to the country take buses, but some may hire a taxi for several days or months to travel around the country. In such cases, imagine how helpful the visitors could be to the driver if they have mechanical skills. However, this is only possible if they were taught these fundamental skills.
Importance of checking oil levels
Examining the engine oil levels is necessary because engine oil prevents friction and heat. These two things can quickly ruin your engine and cause it to catch fire. If your children know how to check engine oil, they will be safe drivers in the future. So, how do you check the oil levels in your engine? A dipstick is connected to the cap of the engine oil container in your engine. This dipstick has two measuring points for engine oil levels. Before checking the oil level, turn off the engine and let it cool for five minutes, as boiling oil can cause inaccurate readings on the dipstick.
After the engine has cooled for a few minutes, clean the dipstick and re-dip it. If the oil reaches the top point between the two points on the dipstick, your engine's oil level is fine, but if it is lower than this point, it is time to be cautious.
All of these techniques are simple to learn, but if students in schools are taught by demonstrating them in action in a car, they will never forget this for the rest of their lives.
