Genre: Christian Living/Parenting

As every parent hopes to raise kids with good manners and values, Jessica Smartt’s practical guide fills the gaps of uncertainty and provides tips on how parents can equip their children in purity, faith, and creativity.


Former English teacher and homeschooling mother of three, Jessica Smartt felt the weight of helping prepare her kids for life, especially with all the outside pressures and influence of the world. She struggled with how she could raise her children with a sense of adventure, self-confidence, manners, faith, and the ability to utilize technology wisely.

Let Them Be Kids is Jessica’s offering of grace and confidence to moms, giving them practical ideas to meet these challenges. Her well-researched, tested methods, woven together with her personal stories and witty humor, deliver wisdom on the tough topics of life, such as

  • family time vs. outside activities,
  • being “cool” or not,
  • boredom,
  • technology usage
  • sexual purity, and
  • showing grace when kids disobey.

Part story and part guidebook, every chapter includes doable strategies and encouragement for the journey.

Let Them Be Kids helps moms feel confident and equipped with ways to provide a safe, healthy, Christ-centered childhood for their children. It leads them to conquer fear and find truth that transforms them and their families as it reminds them how to enjoy and cherish the special memory-making moments of building family values together.

In Let Them Be Kids, Jessica Smartt offers mothers a wealth of information when raising their kids. These are not just tips and tricks, they are profound ways that this author not only researched, but things that have proven true as she raises her own children. She covers a multitude of topics, such as family time vs. outside activities, being “cool” or not, boredom, technology usage sexual purity, and showing grace when kids disobey, and many other things you will find you deal with in raising your child.

As you read Let Them Be Kids, you will find Ms. Smart gives guidelines that have worked with her family as well as other families she knows. She is not saying you must do this or that, she is telling you things that will help you, if you so choose to use them. I also like that this author gives guidelines that have given her children a Christ like atmosphere, when teaching them coping skills for living. Everything in this book is something that can be helpful for moms. This is one I highly recommend!
