WHEN PARENTS DO THE CRIME, CHILDREN AND THOSE LEFT BEHIND, DO THE TIME
This Guide offers help.
It gives “vetted” advice to adults at home caring for children with an incarcerated parent (or other beloved friend or family member who is incarcerated). It helps the caregivers recognize and appropriately respond to the children’s challenging behaviors and inevitably “big” feelings. It takes away at least one important stressor – not knowing what to say or how to say it. It leaves instead, the possibility of acceptance, assurance, peace, and hope.
P.S. Because this Guide was written before the pandemic, consideration needs to be given to those few areas that would not now apply.
