OK I just can't do it....

OK I just can't do it....

I just can't do it....nope! I have almost eaten mailboxes, almost had heart attacks going through intersection under a long standing green light....been closer to ditches than I care to....I just can't get on the highway.....Yeap I am talking about teaching my teenager to drive. Don't get me wrong....she has gotten really good now but I don't I can stand any more. Problem is- she doesn't want to drive with her daddy. I don't know how I ended up being the teacher. He has tried numerous times to get her to drive him somewhere...I just don't get why it has to be me. At least I refuse to do the imaginary break like my mom did.

As I told my daughter when was 12 - no sex or driving until I am dead.  Smiley Very Happy

This is where the Sears driving cool came in really handy for my Mom as well as high school driver's ed. Have you thought about either of those things?

Re: OK I just can't do it....

Well we did drivers ed but it is only two days long...hardly enough time to be safe in my opinion. We did it to get a discount on insurance. Times are changing...I remember when Drivers Ed was a whole sememster.....now they have teen safe driving cams for the cars too. Our insurance company is providing hers....geez I am glad I didn't have that when I was a kid....but as a parent it is kind of nice. Horrifies her! Smiley Happy

Re: OK I just can't do it....

Mine was a joint effort between me and the ex. Then Sears driving school came in for clean up duty. She is really an excellent and conscientious driver.
