Asgreed.  Learning to drive in an auto is fine, but it's easy to drive 
wrong in an auto (using the left foot for braking comes to mind) which 
isn't an issue with a stick.  Also, if your kid needs to drive his/her 
drunk friend home in a 5 speed it's important that he/she can drive it 
and not give up the keys to the drunk friend.  Just one possible thing 
to think about.
