The Outsiders - Telling the children

This booklet for parents, carers and family members provides information about the impact that the imprisonment of a parent can have on children.

It discusses how the subject can be talked about and explained to children, and includes quotes from parents about their experiences of telling their children. The booklet discusses how children may react to a parent's imprisonment and how children can be prepared for visits. The booklet also highlights the particular effects the imprisonment of a mother can have on children and considers the reaction of communities.
