About the Book

Bullying. Social media. Graphic video games. Elite sports teams. Anxiety. Depression. Whatever happened to just being a kid? As parents, we want to safeguard our children from the pressures and influences of the world but also prepare them for age-appropriate realities. So how do we find that balance?

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

  • balancing family time vs. outside activities,
  • the gift of being awkward and uncool,
  • managing technology,
  • protecting purity, 
  • showing grace when kids disobey, and more. 

Part story, part guidebook, every chapter includes doable strategies and encouragement for the journey, equipping moms with ways to provide a safe, healthy, Christ-centered upbringing for our children.

If you want to conquer fear and find the truth that transforms entire families, Let Them Be Kids shows us that it’s not only possible but essential to enjoy every special moment of building family values together. And it serves as a gentle reminder that, someday, we’ll be very glad that we did.
