The pain we feel as parents when our children are going through tough times is not easily explained. The human bond we have with our child is something that can never be broken, even when our child is not with us. Parent’s with an incarcerated child, experience so many issues from visitation, to money on books, to emotional sadness, grief, depression, shame, guilt, and so much more. It can leave us feeling all alone and in despair. It is important to talk to someone who fully understands the grief and struggle that we battle daily.
This is primarily why I created Parents With Incarcerated Children– to be that place where you won’t be alone in your struggle and you can learn, share resources, talk about how you feel, and the things that you experience with those that have been or are going through the same thing as you.
There are many support groups available that one can go to for issues that they are dealing with in life. These groups unite struggling souls and provide them the strength to overcome any negative feelings and aid in their quest to fight the urge to overcome damaging behaviors.
Human interaction is critical during turbulent times. The need for human interaction is a strong impulse and can empower us with the strength we need to overcome. For many, this strength can’t come from ourselves alone. Parents With Incarcerated Children is helping to accomplish this by providing a place where parents with children incarcerated can go to find the support they need and gather the strength they need to continue their daily lives while avoiding the pitfalls that can occur when these feelings and issues are left to flourish without attention.
