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: Many of you are familiar with my 2013 book Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving. Based on the book's success, my publisher (Chicago Review Press) has agreed to a second edition, to be published in September 2017, and for that edition I have recruited as my co-author Pam Fischer, of New Jersey, who is one of the nation's most respected traffic safety professionals and safe teen driving experts!

Pam and I are now hard at work on the revised book, and the purpose of this email is to ask all of you if you have any comments or suggestions for us - things about the first edition that you think we can improve upon or add. We are not asking at this point for text edits, just "30,000 foot" comments, especially topics we should add or key updates we should include. You can email your comments to me by Friday August 5th at thollister@goodwin.com. Thanks!

Friends: You missed my book tour presentation, "Every Parent's Challenge: Freedom vs. Protection"? The good folks in Rochester recorded my talk and posted it on You Tube, link below. 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
