Joe:

If you are using 2x4 gang-nail trusses, have the trusses designed with the parpet on the truss.  Secondly the option of using the crickets that will be around the roof as a brace for the parapets.  We usually use 2' high crickets around the buildings, framed with 3/8" plywood over 2x4's @ 24"oc.
