Would you let a 14 year old girl visit her mom in jail?

thought I'd ask this here since there is an off topic section.


The charge is a check fraud charge and it is an eight month sentence. My 14 year old daughter she seems to be handling it fine. I told her right away about it and she reacted pretty calmly. I told her mom did the wrong thing and is rightfully serving her punishment. They have a good relationship.

The main problem I have is she will see her mom in a jail jumpsuit and see guards and other inmates that could be intimidating. Is that ok for a 15 year old to see? Actually my daughter does not seem scared but instead seems excited and enthusiastic to visit. This is strange to me. Do you find this normal? My daughter seems to find the idea of her mom having to wearing a uniform, sharing a room funny. I wonder why she would think it is funny.

My wife says bring her if she would like to and my daughter says she would like to but I don't know if it is a good idea. She hasn't gone yet so we can still discuss it together.

I don't think it'd be an issue, if she went. I think it's worse for her to imagine the worst of her in the prison, then to see it herself.

I agree with everyone here that its okay for your daughter to go. I think it will not psychologically damage your daughter but may serve as a deterrent. Best of luck to you and your family.

My mom took me to see my dad in jail, I was 6 at the time. One of the only times I saw him too.

I don't see a problem at all. She is 14 and most 14 year olds are 14 going on 30. Maybe she thinks it's funny because she thinks it'll be like OITNB?

If her mother was incarcerated Not only would I let it but I would encourage it regardless of the mistakes our parents make it is important for rehabilitation for kids to understand some of the mistakes that they may have made and also just because the parents have made some bad decisions doesn't mean they deserve to not get to see their children this is two way street and it also speaks to me on a political level of how we need prison reform as someone who is very anti Trump I really don't care if Trump passes prison reform and it looks good be on the title of the bill meaning it actually does prison reform I will be very for that and support that it's important currently right now prisons or colleges for criminals you go in because you smoked a joint you come out knowing how to kill somebody and Jack a car in 18 seconds that's not reform reform is going in for smoking a joint coming out with a college education and I sat on a new job that pays more than you could ever dream because of an education you got while incarcerated that is true prison reform that is a rehabilitation a correctional facility right now there is no such thing as a correctional facility instead it's just warehousing of human beings nothing but slavery by the way I know I mention marijuana but no one should be incarcerated for marijuana we should be incarcerated for raping killing and even stealing as for stealing you can be rehabilitated I believe you even raping maybe even killing I don't believe in the death penalty whether you disagree with me on some of these issues is completely up to you but what I think we all can agree on is that our prison system is currently broke and only helps turn people from Petty criminals to professional criminals they go in and come out far worse than when they went in everyone who comes out of prison should come out better than when they went in and in America that never happens
