Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving


His Father Still: A Parenting Memoir

His Father Still:  A Parenting Memoir is, first, Reid’s father’s disarmingly candid account of the tumult of parenting Reid through his teen years, and then confronting the unthinkable obligations of a father to a son after a sudden tragedy.

Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving

Backed by research and aimed at empowering parents, Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving, is an informative and vital guide to help parents understand the causes of teen crashes and head them off each time before their teens get behind the wheel.

From Reid's Dad

This blog helps parents find the right balance between exposing teens to life’s risks while protecting them from life’s dangers, with a particular focus on safe teen driving.  If this is your challenge, this blog is for you.

No Tan Rápido

Most driving literature for parents focuses on how to teach a teen to drive, without explaining why teen driving is so dangerous in the first place or giving parents a plan to preempt the hazards teens face. By contrast, No Tan Rápido empowers and guides parents to understand the causes and situations that most often lead to teen crashes and to take specific, proactive steps—before and each time a teen driver gets behind the wheel—to counteract them.

The entire video runs 71 minutes but my remarks start at 5:50 and end at about 41:00 (the rest being audience questions). So please have a look. Thanks

Friends: I write to extend a big fat THANK YOU to my hosts, and new friends made, during my 14 stop His Father Still/Not So Fast book tour that ended last night. This began in late January when I was a guest of Scott Haney and Kara Sundlun on WFSB-TV's Better Connecticut program, and continued with seven high school and library talks in CT,and one in Maine; a Rotary Club dinner; one private book club event; one "expo" in a shopping mall; and presentations in Southern California, Utah, North Dakota, Maine, and Rochester, NY. We sold a healthy number of books, the proceeds of which will benefit Reid's memorial fund. So thanks again to my hosts, and also to my assistant Erin Fitzgerald for help with travel arrangements, and Stephanie Glasgow for help with my ever-evolving Powerpoint slides. ...
