Dr. Parnell Donahue (Par) is the host of Parenting Matters. The show begins with a short monologue by Dr. Par then an interview with a special guest who is an expert in the field, and on some shows a panel of two or three parents. The show supports parents as the primary and most important teachers of their children and emphasizes religion as fundamental in raising children to become men and women of integrity, directed by a strong moral compass. Parenting Matters airs Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. on WBOU.org and 100.5 FM. For a complete list of shows, visit https://parenting-matters.com/audio_blog/ .
"Par, it was a pleasure speaking with you on the sidewalk yesterday as always. I did have the opportunity to stream your first program on WBOU.org last night. I really enjoyed it. Congratulations! The format -- your monologue followed by the interview -- is alluring. I really enjoyed your comments on putting the parent first, paying attention to your spouse, and not sweating the small stuff. Great interview also. Thank you for helping make this world a better place." Harold Pinto, Brentwood, TN
