I've taken my 14yo daughter to a big empty parking lot a couple of times now to let her drive my car a little bit. Even let my 12yo son get behind the wheel very briefly, but I was clenching my butt the whole time with him.

He was excited in a very "whoa this is so cool that my dad would let me drive his car at 12" way. My daughter, on the other hand, was excited in very much a "YESSS..this is gonna be me very sooooon" kind of way
