ASK ABOUT MY FRIENDS
- What do I tell my friends about my parent who is in prison?
Check with your parent or caregiver at home to find out what they would like you to share. If you are worried about this you can talk to someone. There are phone numbers on the phone page.
If you don’t want to share or you don’t know what your parent did wrong, you can let your friend know that you haven’t been told everything.
- What if I am bullied because my parent is in prison?
Talk to an adult at school who you trust, and tell your parent at home. It's not your fault your parent is in prison. If you are worried about this you can talk to someone. There are phone numbers on the phone page. Remember, real friends will stand by you no matter what.
- Can I take my friend to visit my parent in prison?
Only if my caregiver says that's OK.
Your friend will need to get permission from the legal guardian that they live with. Then your parent in prison will need to arrange for the prison to send your friend’s guardian a form to fill out requesting a new visitor.
