When a loved one is is prison, there is an abundance of new challenges and hurdles that individual and their family must overcome. Extended family visits are a particularly high hurdle if you have children or other family members that wish to accompany you.

One mother, Jessica, was concerned about her toddler accompanying her to visit her husband in prison. Their trip would entail a sleepover, something Jessica felt unequipped to emotionally handle. Would her shy daughter be able to connect with her father?

How would Jessica facilitate a loving, happy and healing environment for their family? Overall, it is important to remember that even if you feel this visit is too hard, your loved one is probably more nervous than you are.

Your support, effort and love is what they need to stay positive and focus on their rehabilitation.
