How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? PROJECT PLAN

Inquiry Question:

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

Project Plan:

Throughout the research of my project I will be researching three main topics: What is the criminal justice system and how does it affect criminals? How having an absent parent and a constant criminal influence can affect a child physically and emotionally? And what affect can incarceration have on the relationship between a criminal and their child? I will be breaking down each question into smaller and more precise questions collecting a lot of information that can be rounded into the answer of my inquiry question. While going through all the research I will look through information making sure it is valid and from an accurate source.  

Round 1: What is the criminal justice system and how does it affect criminals?

  • What is the mindset of a criminal?
  • What are different types of criminal justice?
  • What is the life style in detention centers and prisons?
  • How can being in jail affect a persons mind?
  • Why do people become criminals?

Round 2: How having an absent parent and a constant criminal influence can affect a child physically and emotionally?

  • How can absent parents affect their child negatively?
  • What are the emotional affects of an absent parent on a child?
  • Do criminals often become abusive parents?
  • How can frequently absent parent differentiate from a completely absent parent?
  • Can being surrounded by constant criminal activity draw children to crime?

Round 3: What affect can incarceration have on the relationship between a criminal and their child?

  • How do children visit incarcerated parents?
  • Are children with parents in jail more likely to develop mental health problems?
  • Do judges take into consideration children when sentencing a criminal?
  • Should children visit incarcerated parents?

HELLO SIENNA!

This is a great inquiry question . you have a great plan for your research ,i am hoping to learn more from your post.

when i first read your topic of interest i thought of if  parents  criminal behavior can be inherited by their child or is it possible for the kids to behave in the same manner as their parent did, and if yes  what percentage ? 

all the best in your next research rounds.

Hey Sienna

I really love your topic and think your project plan is really well set up.  I think it might be interested to look into if its hereditary, as in if you have parents in jail, will the bad things they have done be copied by their children.

Also here is a link to look into if a child's behavior is a reflection of the parents in general.  Its not directly about incarcerated parents but it might provide some more information about children following their parents.  This could also go with the point in your research wondering if kids should visit their incarcerated parents.  Because this could look at if the parents are corrupting the minds of their children there.

I cant wait to read your research!

Hi Sienna,

I think your topic is really interesting and an important one to consider. If it's true that children with criminal parents are more likely to become criminals themselves, I wonder if that would also be true if they weren't raised by their actual parents - say, if their parents were in jail since they were a baby and they hardly/never got to see them? That is, are children more affected by being exposed to their parents' criminal behaviour, or is it hereditary somehow? Another thing that may be interesting to look into is what happens to children whose parents are put in jail? Where do they go and who takes care of them?
