Awkward Prison Visits - By Pat

Dear Prisoners Families Voices. I found Prison Widow's  post to be very interesting and a very good read. Both my kids are teenagers and have lost interest in visiting their Dad. There are many pregnant pauses on prison visits and although it should be a time to engage and bond, I too find myself lost for words because there is so much going on around us in the visiting room. In order to break the silence, I find myself going to the hatch to buy more coffee and snacks. My kids say its boring but I can hardly turn round to their Dad and tell him that so many a time he phones it is awkward when he asks when the kids are going to visit him. Thanks for approaching this subject. Best Wishes, Pat.
