Topic: A Broader View / should my daughter visit her mother in jail? is there a benefit to visiting?

my daughter seems to be taking it fine and she says she has no problem visiting

Daughter seems to be taking her mother being away for a while fine and she does seem a little excited. I wonder why. She even poked some fun at her mom that “she is getting ordered around now” in a clear joking way. My wife was self deprecating about it and didn’t mind.

also, do you think it will make a difference seeing her mom in jail than some random person. Also the person she is seeing in jail being a woman, female like her. Maybe it can make it more real to he

Topic: A Broader View / should my daughter visit her mother in jail? is there a benefit to visiting?

my wife will soon be entering county jail for seven months for a money crime. . I am willing to stick by her and not leave her because I feel She made some stupid mistakes but it was out of character so I think she just got herself into a bad situation and make some poor decisions. And I am not defending her or saying she should not serve her punishment. I told my kids she is rightfully serving her punishment which is the right thing for her mistakes. I am wondering what is the best way to prepare for this situation and how to handle it. I have a daughter who is 15 and she seems to be handling it fine. I told her right away about it and she reacted pretty calmly. She later joked about how her mother is “getting ordered around now”. I think it is just a joke and I think it is better to be that way instead of being hysterical about it . I was originally not going to let her visit her mom in jail because I would think exposing her to that environment is not a good idea but I am actually hearing that it is a good idea to let her visit but why? isn’t it a bad idea to let a 15 year old be exposed to a jail. She could easily be intimidated by the guards and inmates and just the area. My wife says bring her if she wants to visit but don’t if she doesn’t. She says she doesn’t have a problem visiting but I am not sure. Also I want to make sure it doesn’t feel like the whole family is in jail

also, should I tell my wife to keep quiet in jail? I would hope she doesn’t talk to anyone there.
