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.

Friends: Hum by Verizon update: this morning from NYC I did 29 TV and radio interviews in five hours about how parents of teen drivers can use monitoring technology. Here is a clip from a Denver interview.

Friends: my safe teen driving advocacy starts a new initiative this week. I have agreed to work with Verizon to be their national spokesperson, explaining the use of monitoring technology to help parents supervise their teen drivers. Verizon's monitoring system is called Hum; it's a plug in module that transmits data and alerts from a car driven by a teen to an app on a parent's phone. How my involvement came about, and its goals (and limits) is in a new post on my blog. Campaign launch is this Wednesday, a 15 city satellite media tour. Pleased to have this opportunity to share the themes of Not So Fast and From Reid's Dad with a wider audience.

Friends: one of the mysteries of the publishing world is why and how Amazon prices books on line. Authors and publishers have no control. For example, since its publication in 2015, His Father Still, a trade paperback, and 2016 Oprah Book Club recommendation, has been priced at $25.99. But now, suddenly, the list price is $5.00! They also lowered the price of Not So Fast, my teen driving book, from $11 to $4.50. Who knows how long this pricing will last, but if cost has deterred you from buying, it shouldn't now. Www.fromreidsdad.org for links, or just search the title on Amazon.com. Thx ...
