My dh is actually in jail..gets out on the 16th...a month of my life s*****g.



But...after I had my dd#2 this past week I took her to see dh so they can meet. He was unable to hold her..but he got to see her.



I havent taken his son because he as autisum and doesnt understand his daddy is gone anymore and the firsg few days after he was arrested he got really depressed.



My 19mo old hasnt gone either because she is very depressed about him being gone and not understanding..i think seeing him through glass will make everything worse on her.



If my children were a bit older and understood that he did something he shouldnt have and has to be there for a bit then I would take them all...but until then id rather not confuse them or risk making their pain worse.

Of course, in Canada I can't see someone going to jail for a non-violent crime that long but I'll play along. Hell... violent crimes get less then a year. Ugh. I see no problem with it, my Dad had been in and out of jail while I was younger and it did not effect me one bit.

Probably not. That's kind of the point of going to jail, you're supposed to suffer the consequences of your actions.



I'd never want my innocent children to see their parent in jail.

Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" Pedophiles are NOT allowed visitation amongst the public. If they get visitation, it is in a private room or behind a glass window. :roll:"


Although her point is dumb..^^this is not true.
My ex-step-dad had visitation in the regular room...and there were kids there.

I would absolutely bring my child. We actually were in that situation last year and I would bring our son to see his dad at least once a week and we spoke on the phone several times a day. It is important to maintain the bond between the child and parent.

In fact, I would seriously reconsider even staying with my SO if he ever went to jail, for whatever reason. That is NOT the kind of life I want my DDs growing up in.
