“We don’t have to raise perfect children, just healthy ones”

– Dr. Charles Dent


We can become your coach, advisor, mentor and friend to your success as a parent. Most of our skills have come from the models of our parents or that which we see elsewhere. Parenting is an art which requires fine tuning as our children get older. We have coaches in many arenas of life, but who can coach parents to coach their children to success? New Level Parenting is here to do just that.

Social emotional learning (SEL) is defined as the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Parents drive the vision for their family, helping their children develop healthy self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship and responsible decision-making skills. Parents are their child’s first teachers and the first to model these behaviors. They create the culture of the home and communicate—primarily through their behaviors—the patterns and processes for decision making and relationships.

In New Level Parenting, we help parents evaluate their current patterns and processes while learning new skills to help them coach their children to success.

When asked, “What is your vision for your life and that of your children?”, many parents stumble over the answer. One parent explained, “It is difficult and shameful admitting I don’t have one, and I don’t have the skills to create one, but I know I need one.” Another stated, “this is the best thing that has ever happened to me; I thought I knew how to parent, but my eyes have been opened.”

New Level Parenting has three goals for parents and families:


Parents lay the foundation for healthy relationships and are the cornerstone upon which social and emotional learning practices are built. New Level Parenting collaborates with faith and community-based organizations to help parents develop healthy social and emotional habits that they, in turn, transfer to their children. We believe that strong parents raise strong children and create strong families. Strong families are the foundation for strong communities. Dent Enterprises New Level Parenting helps transform our communities, one family at a time.
