Valdosta - Want to know how to be a better parent and help your child succeed in school? You can find out at a workshop in Valdosta this weekend.

The Lowndes County School System and Moody Air Force Base are sponsoring the fifth annual Parent University Saturday. Dozens of seminars will be offered on everything from potty training to learning disorders, financial aid and more.

"It's local experts, people from your own community who deal with these issues every day and they're here to help you and they want to answer questions and be a resource for parents, grandparents, and child care providers in our area," said Jennifer Hattaway, Organizer.

Parent University is from 8:30 until 12:30 Saturday morning at Lowndes High School. Admission is free and child care will be provided.
