Teen Driver Survival – A Coaching Kit for Parents


This is a very unique Coaching Kit for Parents to work with their teen who has a driving permit. It contains more than 10 videos to help parents help their teen become a safer driver.

By state requirement, each teen is required to have their permit for several months with a defined number of hours of training by parents. Most parents say they don’t have a clue in what to do in working with their new teen driver. This is not just a condensed version of the DMV manual. It contains actual strategies for parents to use.

Parent Teen Contract

The use of the Parent/Teen Contract can help to make the “learning to drive” process a very meaningful “Rite of Passage” process for a new teen driver. This is a great opportunity to use the contract as a basis for clear communication, up front at the time of permit and/or licensing, without using verbal “threats” by parents and attitudinal “whatevers” by teens. Or attempting to deal with a problem after there is a problem. We recommend that parents and teen literally sit at the kitchen table and go over the contract in detail, and discuss exactly what it means. And also, that the teen understands that the consequences are taken seriously and will be enforced as it is agreed.

We believe the use of this contract is one of the most effective strategies to help a teen driver become aware of the process of becoming a responsible human being through the process of becoming a driver!
