Parnell Donahue
Dr. Parnell Donahue (Par) was born and raised on a farm in Minnesota, the third child in a family of nine. He earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin and served as a general medical office in the USAF. After completing a pediatric residency, he practiced in Wisconsin and Georgia. Although he maintained his practice in pediatrics, his areas of concentration were adolescent medicine and sports medicine.

Donahue currently works part time for the Military Entrance Processing Station where he performs physical exams on military candidates seeking enlistment in the U.S. Military Services.

He enjoys reading, writing, gardening, wood working, and cooking for friends and family – which includes fourteen grandchildren. He has helped care for under insured children at a volunteer clinic; taught in an after-school program for at-risk teens; and served on the board of CASA, a program that advocates for kids who end up in the court system through no fault of their own. Most recently, he was a member of the pastoral board at his church.

Tools for Effective Parenting is Donahue's fourth book. His first book, Germs Make We Sick, was published in 1975. It was followed in 1979 by Sport Doc. Both books were published by Alfred A. Knopf and are no longer in print. In 2010, the popular Messengers in Denim was published. Tools for Effective Parenting will be released by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, Inc.

He lives with his wife Mary, and their dog Belle, in Brentwood, Tennessee.
