My son has his learners permit. Now what?

This weekend I took my son out to an empty parking lot for his first experience behind the wheel of a vehicle. He didn't do anything that caused my heart rate to spike, so we got that going for us. However, I realized that I have no idea what I am doing.

I got my license on a small South Pacific island with only two lane roads, no stop lights, one stop sign, and no speed limit in excess of 25 mph. I don't have the traditional drivers education / parents teaching me to drive experience to draw upon here. He won't be taking drivers ed at school and he will eventually have to take professional driving lessons, but I'd like to get him relatively competent before he gets to that point.
What types of things helped you the most when learning to drive? Or, what do you wish your parents had done when they were teaching you to drive? Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
