Every year thousands of teens die when they make a single mistake or bad decision. Tragically, one in four teenagers gets into a collision by age 18. Driving is also the leading cause of teenage deaths. Our book "Teach Your Teen to Drive... and Stay Alive" is a fun and highly effective way for parents to teach their teens to drive while covering each states' parent-teen practice driving laws-typically an average of 50 hours. Leave the "driving" to us with our new and fascinating "how to" book that reads like a novel but with a powerful message on safe driving! It has been statistically proven that parents can help reduce collisions by almost 33% just by practicing driving together. We provide you with the tools and "keys" for success with our critically acclaimed guidebook. The book is written with innovative, positive and lifesaving tips helping "safety-proof" your family from expensive collisions, tickets, insurance rates repairs or a DUI. "Teach Your Teen" features 8 simple, life-saving chapters that also focus on driving safety and reducing parent-teen anxiety. We developed a technique where the parent first performs each drill three times followed by the teen helping to reduce this anxiety and improving teen driving through multiple repetitions. The teen performs all of the drill's lessons in a "grand finale" or culmination and then you are rewarded as you celebrate your success together with our famous "ice cream social" that we know will create a lifetime of memories. "Teach Your Teen to Drive" is a professionally written book by two driving experts with over 50 years experience that will place you and your teen on the same page as they enter their own journey into adulthood. Ten years in the making, this is one of the best (and simplest) parent-teen driver's guide ever written. Together, we can make a difference helping you drive, thrive and stay alive!
