Ok now. I have done alot of challenging things in my life before. I had my child when I was 16-went to college-so forth and so on but my newest challenge is quite difficult. I just bought a car for my 16 year old son (the above mentioned only child) and it is a manual-OMG. I feel like I am never going to get this! I am doing better, but today we went to the grocery store and the whole trip was going well until I had to leave the store. I had to go up this big hill (after 5 minutes of sitting there saying to myself-alright you can do it) and finally went up the hill and said to hell with this, I aint stopping and went straight through the stop sign at the top and turned left. Obviously there was not any traffic coming or I would not have went ,but I was so worried about either stalling or rolling backward there was no way! Does anyone have any suggestions that would make driving a manual any easier? I think if both of us would have started learning on a stick, it would be easier because he is struggling a little to. However, I fell like at 32, can an old dog learn a new trick?
