Hi guys Im new here and I have a question that I would like your opinion on. My fiance is in jail most likely until April and he wants to see our daughter. I'm very skeptical about going and bringing her.in that environment. What should I do She misses him dearly. And She keeps looking for him.Any suggestions or what would you do?
My husband works in a jail and I see children there all the time when I am dropping things off to him. April is a long time for her to wait so I say yes, however, depending on her age, try to explain the situation. PLEASE don't tell her that daddy is on vacation. They know more than you think they do.
That depends on her age, maturity level and how much she is able to understand. Keep in mind, it may be harder on her having to leave him than if she doesn't see him at all. Will he be able to have face to face visitation or through a glass? Thats another thing to consider.
when my older kids bio dad was in jail I took them to visit him. my daughter was about 2 or so and she didn't really get what was going on. my son was about 4 and he didn't handle it so well. he sat on my lap the entire time and really wouldn't look or talk to him. I'm not sure if he was scared or what. I'm glad I took them, but you know your child better than anyone. if you think she will okay, then take her.
