Men in Prison: Family Characteristics and Parenting Views.
Hairston, Creasie Finney
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v14 n1 p23-30 1989
Examined family characteristics and parenting experiences of long-term prisoners. Majority of 115 respondents, whether single or married, were fathers of minor children, and their parenting experiences were largely prison-based. Most did not see their children often but wanted to improve parenting skills. Findings support efforts to address parenting problems of incarcerated fathers. (Author/NB)
