My brother wants to go visit mom =/

I knew this day would come. My mom is in jail. I have custody of my brother. My mom has no visitation any longer because when she was out she couldnt comply with it. Now my little brother wants to go to the jail to see her. UGH. His case worker says it is up to me as long as it is supervised. IDK what to do yet. I dont want to take him and get him all upset if she dont want to see him or if she is a bitch to him (he is only 12 and gets really upset when she does this). I also dont want to tell him no because she is still his mom. What would you do?

I'd let him go. You may want to protect him which is of course admirable but he will just lash out at you more. I can see this becoming a huge grudge quick.

I would not do it. I would explain to him that it would be too upsetting.  Perhaps when he older. 12 is too young to take to a place like that.

I think I'd take him.   I think he'll blame you for a lot of things if you don't.

is it possible to write her a letter asking if she would see him?

I'd take him once and explain that if happens you won't be taking him back.

If he really wants to go, i would take him. Just prep him before you leave, let him know what its going to be like (the jail). If your mom is mean or rude to him, don't take him anymore, i would just let him call her.
