    Are you in an area with desolate back roads? That's how I learned to drive. My father was super impatient so my mother handed me the keys and said, "go drive." I taught myself.

    Ooohhhh....when I think back at what I put my poor parents through teaching me to drive I just cringe. It got so bad that finally my grandma had to come take over. It took me three tries to pass the test

    Just try to remember what a fond memory it will be some day down the road. Give him a little space to make some mistakes. I also think about a half a cup of whiskey before each lesson will help

    Good luck!!!!

    Oh boy, do I feel your pain...my 18 yr old son was the WORST driver when he was 16. I couldnt even ride in the car with him, it was too stressful. so his Dad handled the driver's training part of parenting. And now, 2 years later, I can honestly say his driving is NOT BAD. He drives a big 20 yr old pick up that is basically a tank, so I don't worry so much.

    Hang in there, Patty, his driving will get better!

    Pay someone else to do it? While you sit at home and drink.

    my pops didn't have the patience to teach me so my mother did instead, probably why I'm such a bad driver in general

    I taught all 3 of my children, including 2 at the same time(twins). I did better when I saw them not as my children but as students needing to be taught a skill.

    Heh, sorry Patty I don't know what to say. I was a terrifying driver when I first learned. If I could reassure you about anything is that after the first couple of tries they get better and it becomes more safe. So as long as you survive that your risk of death and doom decreases. If they understand the true severity of screwing up it is better.
