Parenting From Prison

Renford speaks at length about being, both, a parent and a grandparent while serving time, and the emotional impact that it has on fathers.
How visits work, how trailer visits can cause anxiety, especially when visitors aren’t allowed to use their tech, and what CSC can do to help encourage a stronger parent-child and overall family relationship, inclusive of kids of all ages.

“I’ve seen men come, they’re with their kids, and when they leave, they turn off…because now you’re going back to the life of prison…I have to be Daddy with my kids and go back and be an inmate.”
