  • Probably not. Might depend on whether or not I thought he was guilty of whatever he was locked up for. Although even then I tend to think prison is not the best environment for children.

  • depending on the childs age and the reason why he is in there in the first place.

  • At his age now, yes I would because I know that he would miss his dad. My son is use to going to the jail because we take food and drinks to him and his coworkers all the time.

  • Wow! That is a huge question. I think it depends on the child's age, relationship with said dad, the type of facility he is at, the visiting program for children employed there and what kind of person the dad is.

  • it would have to be up to the child

  • For me it depends on the childs age, how long the dad will be incarcerated, and what the reasoning is.
