DEAR ABBY: Like "I'd Rather Walk in Houston," I learned to drive as a high school senior. My father taught me in a local park. As I learned to operate the car, I gained confidence, but I was still not ready for street traffic. He said I was a "slow learner," but didn't force me onto the streets. After several more rounds in the park, I was able to face traffic. Yes, I was uneasy, but having Dad in the passenger seat boosted my confidence. I drove with supervision for several months to get accustomed to the controls.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 17-year-old girl who has been in a relationship for a year and a half with "Richard. " I love him but he is mentally and physically abusive. He is also addicted to cough medicine. He's no longer an alcoholic. While he was in jail for seven months, I thought he had changed and wouldn't hit me anymore, but he still does. Anyone in their right mind would get up and leave, but the one time I did, he pretended he didn't care and I attempted suicide. I don't know what to do. - Abused Teen in California DEAR TEEN: Cough medicines contain alcohol, which means Richard's still an alcoholic.
