We came across a book that might be worthwhile reading to parents of teenagers who are embarking on their driving career. Entitled, Licensed to Drive! Using the Power of Story to Instill Wisdom and Safety in the Next Generation of Drivers by Lynn Bieber, MS MFT, the book teaches teen drivers by telling stories.
Car accident statistics are very worrying to most parents: In a given year, more than 4,000 teenage drivers are killed in car accidents and even more will have their lives altered because of serious injuries and disabilities such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and severe facial cuts and fractures.
The premise of this book is that teenagers can relate to a story better than a lecture. Written by a licensed Marriage Family Therapist the author raised four children and her youngest son was killed in a car accident. She writes from her wisdom and experience.
If you have a teenage driver, you might want to purchase this book. Click here for more information.
