    I have ADHD, and am impulsive. My mom wants me to use a driving simulator before I learn with the lawnmower, which is how she learned.



    How do I show her that I can use the lawnmower to practice?

    Earn her trust for starters, and understand what are you in need of accomplishing.

    She doesn't think I'm ready to get behind the wheel.

    I'm not that good at following directions, and sometimes don't pay attention.

    She said it would be too dangerous for me to go to driver school.

    I guess there's nothing I can do. I'll never be independent.

    Kind of opposite to the ordeal but just ride a bike if nothing else could be done.

    My ADD gave me far too many problems when I tried to get the hang of driving. I gave up trying to learn years ago.

    It ain't all bad, though. If the place you want to get to is close enough, walking or biking will work with the added benefit of getting some exercise. There's also public transportation, friends, and/or a significant other that can be relied on.

    I have a driver license, but I barely drive. Cycling is just a lot... faster. You don't need to find a parking spot, you can skip all traffic jams and you can take the shortest way. And cycling is just less stressful in general.

    I can reach the closest city in 30 minutes by car, but just give me 15 minutes and I'll be there if driving on my bicycle.

    But anyway, your mom really needs to trust you, otherwise it will be impossible to learn something. Believe me, my mom trusted me, but we still had lots of arguments :sweat:
