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.

Friends: Today and tomorrow mark the tenth anniversary of Reid's crash and passing. Reid's death launched me on a journey of safe driving advocacy, both for teens and all drivers. Today I am pleased to publish an article entitled, "Ten Years, Ten Questions: A Reflection on Safe Driving Advocacy." The link is below. I hope you will find it thought-provoking. Feel free to forward and share. Best holiday wishes to you all. Tim

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!
