OK! I confess, my daughter is only 13 1/2, but the thought of actually driving a large truck seems terrifying to her. So, I was the mean mom last night and forced her to sit behind the wheel. Oh and before all of you call your favorite police officers to site me. She was on our property the entire time!!! We were taking some items from the house that we had packed away to put them into the garage in the back. I mean really, face it, we are moving so why not get a step ahead of the game right? Anyway, back to the subject at hand!!! So we live on an acre lot and to drive from the garage you need to drive across the lot, around the store until you get to the driveway reaching the house. If you ask my daughter it was quite the traumatic experience. All I had her do was to put the car into gear and then lift her foot from the brake. We did not work on the gas pedal at all. She freaked a few times and slammed on the brake...I think we were going at least 2 mph. Better safe than sorry!!! Anyway, She made it! I was so proud of her. She conquered a bit of her fear. She will need to conquer much more of her fear later on, but it was a start. way to go Corinna!!!!
