Description

“Attempted murder victim told the Brainerd Dispatch she believes her sixteen-year-old son saved her.”

This is the news article detailing the event that would drastically change Tyler Zed’s life and that of his family forever.

Growing up in a small town in Minnesota, Tyler and his two brothers filled their days with chaotic fun, from playing hockey to building forts to making their own home movies. The household was also full of addiction and abuse that ultimately led to their father attempting to murder their mother on Christmas Eve 2007.

Trailer Park Parable follows Tyler and his family before Christmas Eve 2007, the events leading to that night, and the years afterward. It trails the boys as they deal with varying degrees of PTSD and their own battles with addiction, before they eventually turned their creative coping mechanisms, like their YouTube channels, into million-subscriber successes.

From living in a trailer park to running a multi-million-dollar business, Trailer Park Parable highlights a true, American-dream story, countering a popular narrative that tells us you may as well not even try, the system is rigged against you.

    I have enjoyed watching Zeducation on YouTube for several years and was interested to read about Tyler’s life story. I had no idea he went through some tragic times with his dad. I am happy for his eventual success.

    A remarkable true story of overcoming trauma, and finding forgiveness. Extremely well written and enjoyable. Bounced from childhood experiences to young adult challenges and all the inbetween. Keeps you interested and wanting more as the crescendo grows. Laced with funny quirks and heartwrenching scenarios, just goes to show you never really know what everyday people go through and how resilient young souls can be.
  • FIVE STARS FOR SURE!
