Yes, as long as he isn't in for something really bad. Jail visits are usually very mild, they are very well supervised and the inmates are kept in order, the kids aren't being put in any danger and aren't at risk of hearing things they shouldn't. If they want to see their father, then they can do so. Outside familial connections are often what keeps inmates from going over to the violent side.

Ad's mom is in jail for b&e, drugs among a few others and is demanding ar bring sd to see her in jail or she will fight us on revoking her rights


Quoting logansmommy612:

If it was a minor offence and it was out of character for him definitley. If it was murder nope! Maybe if i didnt think he was guilty though.

I really dnt know. I work at the jail so it would be a comfortable environment for me... But sad for her to see her father there.

Did it every Friday for over two years. She was two and a half when he got out and doesn't remember any of it.

My sd's mom wants us to bring her for visits. She has charges for b&e, larceny, drugs and many more.

Shes not a danger to the child, she wants to see the child and seeing the child could give her a reason to try to clean herself up, its safe, and it can be a learning experiance to the child of what happens when you go down that path, I would allow it.
