Parents got schooled in the power of parenting at Charlottesville High School Saturday.
Nearly 80 people took advantage of the free information sessions, covering everything from healthy eating habits to the teen dating culture.
Parents were able to open up to professionals to ask difficult questions they have about home life and their children, young or old.
While the majority of the attendees were adults, there were some teens in the crowd.
"I heard about it from my dad, and I wasn't really sure about it, but I looked at all the topics and I kind of thought it would be interesting to learn about what they thought as opposed to what I thought, to see both sides," said Neve Gallagher.
The event was run by Safe Schools/Healthy Students. The organization is preparing for a parent-child event on April 15 to address alcohol and drinking and driving.
