Introducing New Bold U: School for Parents

New Bold U: School for Parents is a two-day long transformational event that empowers parents to be true stewards of their children and help them be their best selves in the process. 

Imagine being at a beautiful location that will be your school and playground for 2 powerful days, in a company of passionate parents that will become your new friends. You'll realize the challenges of being a parent is no longer yours to bare, alone, it's something you can explore with other likeminded parents. 

New Bold U had entrepreneurial heavyweight CEOs including Steve Sy, Lance Tan of Lakbay Museo and Dessert Museum, Zarah Juan, and great thought leaders such as Francis Kong, Jayson Lo, Toni Miranda and experts such as Ralph Layco,  Nix Eniego, Charity Delmo, Hector Angeles and more.

This 2020, we are having some of the country's thought leaders on parenting with ground-breaking human transformation ideas and tools to help you grow and achieve your highest potential as a parent and as a person.

Are you one of the 50 few?

The 5 Pillars of New Bold U
Transformative Parenting

1. Strengths-based Parenting
There's no “right” way to parent. We believe in embracing individual parenting style by discovering and developing their own — and their children’s — talents and strengths. This builds the foundation for positive parenting.

2. Self-Awareness
ur parents might have taught us disempowering beliefs.. unconsciously. Self-awareness must be a practice to shape how we raise children- and replacing beliefs that don't serve us anymore.

3. Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence creates loving and supportive parenting. Having powerful understanding about emotions, we discern our kids emotions better and learn how to respond to them, while understanding our own.

4. Fun in Lifelong Parenting
Once you're a parent, you're a parent for life. By embracing this journey fully and seeing this in the lens of purpose, we approach parenting not as a duty but a mission.

5. Education and Tools for Growth
By applying latest and powerful classic strategies to parenting, we become more effective in rearing the little humans we love so much. We will equip parents with global ideas that work and frameworks that inspire.

A Message From Ralph Layco

new bold u founder

II am lucky to be nurtured by two individuals who always sought the best for us. Starting our family in a small hut in General Santos, my parents had big ambitions for us their kids. They were supportive, loving, nurturing but they ididn't allow us to live life too easy. They challenged us, even though we complained that other kids from private schools are more pampered than us.

Fast forward, I know I am the person I am now because of them.

We thought it's school alone that could improve the kid's chances of winning in life. I realized it's our parents who truly has the biggest impact to children's emotional and spiritual growth.

Their limitations become the kids' limitations. 

Did it ever startle you why there were no school for parents... when parents have a powerful impact to a child's life?

We thought so too. Parenting is not only tedious, it's critical. In this changing times where parents face challenging tasks of rearing children (technology and information overload, growing anxiety and more) we need stronger strategies to parenting. The old way of parenting needs major updating.

As a movement dedicated to reimagine education, we believe we can do something about this. Not only a school for parenting, but a place of belonging and transformation. We're all figuring out parenting.

Thus, New Bold U School for Parenting is born.

We have a very important vision...

A future where there is stronger, more resilient families nurturing kids who are achieving their fullest potential.

Imagine if our parents were equipped better.

There was no rulebook for parenting, so we grew up playing with the cards our parents dealt with. Our parents mostly have the best intentions. They tried to nurture us with what they know.

But in nurturing a human being, intentions are not enough.

The cycle can stop with us.

To raise kids to their potential, than moulding them to fit our needs.

To grow our kids in love, than nurturing them through superiority.

To see them beyond trophies, but to be invested in their growth so they can fly..

Here are what people have to say about New Bold U!

 A Personal Message from Ralph Layco 

"For me, there are things that are "A something" - a school, a community, etc.

But there are a few things that are "The Something". NBU for me is the School & the Community that we did not have . It's the School and the Community you secretly wished you have been part of. Glad to say NBU was made when I needed it the most."

Xanthe Lerey Panes

E-Commerce Entrepreneur
NBU Student, July 2019

"During the whole NBU process I was able to understand my truest self. NBU taught me to embrace what I thought was my “weakness” as my strength and learned that I boxed myself in a safe zone and kept a lot of fears. It gave me a chance to unlock my full potential, I developed self-awareness, and eventually, I found my passion. The cherry on top? I was affirmed that I am not “weird”. I was the odd one because I was in the wrong crowd.
Armed with the right mindset, after NBU, the boldest thing I did was I ditched my secured job and decided to follow the real purpose my Maker created me to be. I learned that being a full time “Momtrepreneur” is possible! I saw my value so, I intentionally I accepted growth—the road less travelled. I know it’s not easy, it equals pain and hardship, but it’s all worth it! After all, life is too short not to take a risk"

Franz Erika Repuyan

"Attending NBU was indeed extraordinary.
Dati gusto ko lang gayahin si ganyan and ganito because I want to become like them, until then NBU made me realise that being me is different from being them and that what makes each of us special, ingenious and BOLDER! "
