I do not profess to be the perfect parent; in fact, I am far from it.  But after every conversation with Dr. E, I feel like I am getting one or two steps closer.  The Parent Pilot provides new approaches and alternate perspectives on teen behaviors that have consistently helped us tackle some of our most challenging family issues.  Thank you, Dr. E,!
Dr. Emmett Shaffer (Dr. E) and The Parent Pilot is an invaluable resource that I highly recommend especially in today’s world. The insightful expertise and practical guidance Dr. E provides is absolutely powerful.  I love the theme of “parent pilot” because with parenting, it sometimes feels like we are literally building the plane while flying it! Thanks Dr. E for providing a clear flight plan for us!
Thank you, Dr. E, for all you are doing for me and my family! You are God sent in many ways. The Parent Pilot has guided my daughter and I to higher attitudes and we are forever grateful! Helping my daughter raise two little ones has not been an easy task until we met you! Thank you so much for all you are doing, we appreciate you!
