I was talking to a neighbour this morning and she has a partner in prison and a daughter who is 15.
Her daughter had lots of friends up until the time her Dad was sent to prison for a drugs offence. Her friends parents have told their teenage children to give the prisoners daughter a wide berth which led to her asking me for some advice. This situation is a difficult one because older children are more judgemental and tend to listen more to their parent's views. I couldn't offer her any advice at all because sadly this is a situation that either accepted or not. I personally would like to read more about the problems that teenage children of prisoners go through. I would like to bump the topic up again so any comments are welcome. Thanks.
