Do you think it's right to not take kids to prison to visit their parents?
My mom was telling me about her friend's daughter. Her husband went to jail, sentenced to 5 years for aggravated assault after he got into a bar fight. She served him with divorce papers in prison, and her kids are 13 and 15.
The prison he's in is 4 hours from their house. He calls her daily asking about the kids, but they refuse to speak to him and don't want to go visit. Her parents support her 100%, but his parents call her constantly asking to take the kids, saying they'll regret not visiting their father, that the kids are the only thing keeping him going, etc. She just says they kids don't want to, and that if she ever hears of them pressuring them to go, she'll cut off contact with them.
What do you think? Would you make them go?
