Parenting from Prison: Staying Connected while Apart
Tomlin, Angela; Pickholtz, Naomi; Green, Allison; Rumble, Patricia
Zero to Three (J), v32 n5 p18-22 May 2012
The United States has more people in prison than any other country, and more than half of those incarcerated are parents. This article reviews the challenges to parenting while in prison and considers how parental attachment experiences and difficult life trajectories have an impact on parent-child relationships. The authors provide examples of prison-based parenting programs, including a description of the Wee One's nursery program at Indiana Women's Prison, and provide recommendations for clinical practice.
