“What Ruth has taught me…and I’m definitely going to implement as this is going to save the relationship between me and my 8 yr old son…is such a crucial gift that she gives to the world. We as parents need to know how to speak the language that our children are learning on online games before they will listen to us and connect with us.” Dr Veerle Van Tricht

Burnout Expert

“Ruth’s process isn’t just something that can be used for parents and children in a family setting, but it’s a philosophy that can be used broad spectrum. That ability and techniques, strategies on how to move out of my agenda, and be more in present time for the person, child or people I’m with, so that I can actually connect with them…I would strongly recommend that that’s just a wonderful process that is useful for all of us in this busy world.” Dr Gerry Rosanove

Chiropractor, Yoga Teacher and NLP Practitioner

“The work that I’ve seen Ruth put out…I think it’s really amazing what she’s doing because it’s a genuine problem that the community is facing…I would really recommend what Ruth is doing and I really believe it will be something useful for you too” Rusydi

Founder of Business Video Trainer

“For all of you parents out there, (if) you have a kid between the ages of 3 to 12, this is a lady that you want to listen to…She is so authentic, she’s so genuine, she speaks from the heart, and she speaks from her experiences.”
