I survived and didn't crash it.

And BTW I have friends who learned to fly in a T-37 jet and did fine. It is all in the training.
I agree. My kids will probably end up driving ///M cars, mostly because its what he have now...

They also know, at 10 and 5 (well, the 5yo doesn't get it so much) that cars are not toys, unless they are in the garage and you're playing 'car'. When they're being driven, they are 1+ ton of steel, rubber, and explosive/toxic liquids. They also know that if they abuse the privilege and do stupid stuff, the privilege is gone.
