Yep, I suppose I could.
But I kind of feel that someone else doing it would keep her focussed and stop her being tempted to talk about ‘our stuff’ while I’m teaching her.
I want it to be more formal, so she can hear their voice telling her what they’ve taught her should she need it.
Maybe that doesn’t make sense. But I kind of know what I want from it for her.
Sure, fair enough, it was just a suggestion. I don't know enough about you to know whether it's a dynamic that would work - it often doesn't when parents try to teach their children something formally so it might not between spouses either.
Obviously for getting an actual licence, there's no alternative to going to a proper instructor, but for something less formal, at the very least it would work out a lot cheaper if it worked out.
It only occurred to me because I taught someone to land my aeroplane once, after three separate instructors at two different flying schools had completely given up on her. She didn't go on to get a licence, as it happened, but it gave her a sense of satisfaction and dispelled the sense of failure that she'd ended up with.
I felt pretty chuffed myself, too
