I have had both my daughters out both my jeeps, ones a manual tj and the other is an auto Jk. They defiantly do better in the auto, but I want them both to at least know how to drive a manual if they had to. Good luck, once they have there license, they will be gone.... lol

Agreed on the manual. I didn't buy a manual as my first car (my jeep now) but I learned manual before I was even allowed to get my permit and drivers license so I knew how to drive one in case it came down to it. I'm not amazing at it, but it gets the job done.

Start em young, teach em right. The more experience, the better. I have to brag here just a little bit. My daughter turned 16 in April of this year. She had always said she wanted to drive my YJ some which is fine but she had to learn to drive a stick. I started her at 14 and now she has no problems at all. She has a Liberty but she takes off in my Wrangler as well. Now for the really good part. I bought a SeaDoo this summer. Mostly for her and her friends to have fun with. Same deal...to go to the lake, you have to know how to hook up, pull and most importantly, back the trailer in the water. I am proud to say I have a 16 year old Girly Girl (Cheerleader) that can drive a straight shift AND pull a trailer/ back a trailer.

I, too, taught my daughter to drive a manual. Yes, there was a bit of clutch wear in the beginning, but I still have not changed the clutch out, so it wasn't that bad. Learning that skill has been an excellent investment on numerous occasions. She learned to drive a stick on steep hills while dodging cows that were on the road.

Another skill to teach daughters is how to change a tire.

Sons need to know this as well.
