This is HOW you learn to control bad things...... you PRACTICE them in a controlled situation.

BOTH of my children had to do dounuts in a parking lot for HOURS and straight panic stops and collision avoidance maneuvers with SNOW and ICE. It is the ONLY way you will ever get them able to "feel" when the vehicle is going the wrong way.

problem #3 i have been doing this since 1979,,,lol ,,

and kudos to you for teaching your kids what the feel is!!! it truley makes you a better driver , more people need to know what the feel of out of control is so they dont freak out and lose control or what ever you practice at at the point of know return ,,only to return if that makes any sence,,,,----
and the way your talking you do know what im saying,,,
