“You Should Write a Book” – and We Did
We love sharing our parenting ideas. And writing books just seemed like such a natural extension of our work at Behaven Kids. After our first book, we wrote another and yet another, and more are coming.

Attending Church Services as a family can be stressful, and kids' behaviors can make it a daunting task. Whether your children usually go to children's church or they usually sit in service with you, there is bound to be a time when you will need them to know how to behave in church. Heaven Cents is a wonderful children's book which illustrates to your children what their behavior expectations are, while also making church an activity that kids look forward to. Simply read Heaven Cents as a family before going to church, and watch as your children's attitude toward church services shift to excitement! Once your children see the adventures of Elmer and Lu during church services, they will be happy to follow in their footsteps!
Getting children to behave in church can be tricky. The goal of Heaven Cents for Parents is to help parents engage their children in the experience of church services including explaining what is going on in terms they can understand, helping them participate, teaching them the "steps" of the service, and leading through example. By setting clear expectations, teaching during neutral moments, and rewarding children's participation - kids are much more likely to display positive behaviors during church services. Heaven Cents for Parents will make church a whole different experience through tried and tested techniques. You will agree these techniques are truly heaven sent!
Janie and Roger Peterson, founders of Behaven Kids, have taught thousands of frustrated parents, teachers and caregivers their "Mini Methods" for improving young children's behavior, and now you can learn them too! In a few short hours, you'll learn practical techniques that can bring real change to your children's behavior. This book will help you build a stronger relationship with your child. Get started today! Nearly all parents have experienced a power struggle with their children. Whether it's grocery store battles, homework issues, mealtime struggles or any of a hundred other parent/child conflicts, most moms and dads find themselves going to battle with their children over what should be simple lessons of right versus wrong. If practiced consistently and correctly, the strategies and methods you will learn in this book may not only strengthen and enhance your family relationship but might also change your life and the life of your young child forever. The method enhances good conduct by showering children with extensive amounts of parental praise and attention in response to "good" behavior; naughty behavior is downplayed by offering no rewards and limited verbal and physical responses. This "secret" to successful parenting puts the emphasis on "Yes" rather than focusing on "No, No, No."
Helping children learn to stay in bed after they have been tucked in for the night is a challenge all parents face. The most common advice given to parents whose children have problems at bedtime is "Put them to bed and let them cry themselves to sleep" however, most parents just aren't comfortable doing this. Now, with the help of The Sleep Fairy, families everywhere can have pleasant bedtimes. Not only does this book contain a magical formula for getting your children to stay in their own beds, it appeals to your child's magical inner world. That place where they dream, imagine and wish. Positive rewards work well for other "teaching" moments, including bedtime. Eventually, children learn to feel good about staying in bed and falling asleep without whining, crying or begging. (This, ultimately, is the parent's reward.) The Sleep Fairy is a resource that parents can easily adapt to meet the needs of their own families. Peterson suggests parents add details to the story so that it more closely matches their own children's bedtime routine. Try it! It works...and happy bedtime!
