It’s no surprise that teens engage in reckless activities, but kids today are doing much more than sneaking a drink of alcohol. The newest trends can be deadly for your kids – from street racing to car surfing.
The Need for Speed
Dominic, 18, is obsessed with illegal street racing, and his friend, Justin, boasts that he’s driven 147 mph on the highway! Dominic’s mother, Susan, fears for his safety, but doesn’t know how to control him.a
A Tragic Ending
Trais, 17, was a good kid and a honor student, but his life changed forever the first and only time he went street racing. He accidentally killed a wheelchair-bound mother of two in front of her children, and says he still can’t forgive himself.
Lezlie says her 13-year-old daughter, Lexie, spends more time in a virtual online world than in the real one. She recently caught Lexie’s scantily clad online persona kissing her “boyfriend,” and fears the teen has gone too far.
