Ruiz Family

What we believe

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail
  • We believe it is possible to live with happy and obedient children.
  • We believe that when children enter into their teen years, instead of rebelling and pulling away from you, it should be normal that they become your best friends. 
  • We believe God created the family as a practical way to reveal Himself to mankind and it is the responsibility of parents to show their children what God is like, by their daily example.
  • We believe that true spiritual and emotional healing takes place when we are restored to a friendship with our Creator/Father and choose to forgive our earthly parents, as we understand that they themselves were wounded.
  • We believe all parenting questions can be answered by asking: “What would my Perfect Father do with ME in a similar situation?”
  • We believe children are born with a longing to please their parents.   This is why our children naturally try to imitate our attitudes, behavior and worldview.  If you see something you’d like to change in your child, the first goal is changing yourself!
  • We believe the behavioral patterns we learned from our parents influence everything we do, say and think and we could pass them down to our next generation unless we break the cycle.  
  • We believe we must humbly acknowledge our failures or our kids will lose respect for us and find someone else to follow, someone who will “father” them.  We can avoid this and Win Their Heart as long as we’re willing to change!

Cesar and Pam Ruiz

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail
   Cesar and Pam are regular parents who, when their oldest daughter was born, realized that while whiney children seemed to abound, happy and obedient children were difficult to find.

   Concerned (more like terrified) with the idea that the probabilities were against them, they began their search, studying every material on child training and child psychology they could get their hands on. Many of the ideas they found, sounded great in theory, but when they met the children whose parents were putting the ideas into practice, they were not very impressed. They soon realized they were looking for something deeper than tips and techniques to mold outward behavior.  

   So they decided to start with the end in mind and began studying and interviewing parents with children of all ages who already had “the fruit on the tree”: Parents raising happy and obedient children. They specifically focused on parents with grown children, who were now successfully raising their own children. That was impressive!

   And it was through these observations and through their personal experience raising their own children, that Cesar and Pam identified a clear pattern of what works and doesn’t work in the most difficult, meaningful and demanding occupation in the world: parenting.

   After sixteen years of “practicing” on their own children, Cesar and Pam now travel throughout North, Central and South America and Europe, teaching parents how to win their children’s heart, in order to help them become stable, empowered adults, able to face the world and truly succeed.

The Ruiz family has worked with companies and organizations like Neiman Marcus, the Dallas Independent School District (DISD), Christ for the Nations (CFNI), University of the Nations (YWAM) and numerous churches, children’s homes and orphanages around the world to train parents, teachers and leaders how to implement these principles. Being a bi-cultural family, the Ruiz’ have discovered that that the principles they teach are God-given and universal.

   Cesar and Pam live in Texas with their 6 children (ages 1-16). When asked for their credentials to teach on the subject of raising children, they point to their 6 kids.
