Laughed that the phantom pedal comment.

It's true - family teaching family is usually a recipe for disaster.

The driver training company I used to work for actually advised against it. (No surprise there; it was in our self interest of course.) But we also offered free "co-driver" training so the parents (usually) got an overview of what we were teaching the new driver. We wanted them to understand why we were having them do things that they might not be familiar with, particularly some of the defensive techniques.
