Don't use third gear. The higher the gear the easier it is for the car to roll in gear. You should use 1st or 2nd gears or even reverse. I always use 2nd gear though.

And no... its not because your using 1st gear when you park the car. Your problem - putting the car in 1st gear is because of your clutch! The clutch is seizing on the splines. Only fix is a new clutch.
