How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?
Glass windows and metal bars holding a human soul in captivity. As the years go by the number of divorces has gone up to over 70 000 per year in Canada, showing us that separate parents and absent parents are not uncommon in our society. But switching between your mother and fathers houses per weekend is completely and utterly different than watching your own blood locked behind bars. Children raised into the world are taught by learning from example but the influence of a criminal can entirely change a child’s life. Seeing your mother and father through glass windows or monitored visits can break a kid’s heart leaving them corrupted and more susceptible to depression and other traumas in they’re future.
