Wanted: Information on Parenting Programs for Incarcerated Youth

Youth incarcerated in juvenile facilities are usually legally still children, but some are also parents. Incarcerated teen parents rarely have the opportunity to receive parenting education or visit with their infants despite the proven long lasting benefits experienced by themselves and their children.

Young parents have specific developmental needs. Parenting programs designed for adults may not match those needs.

If your state or county has established a parenting program specifically for incarcerated juveniles who are also parents, others who work with juveniles would like to hear about it. Programs that allow juvenile parents to have their babies with them while they are incarcerated are of special interest.

Any information on parenting programs for incarcerated juveniles would be helpful to those wanting to establish a program in their facilities. If you can help, send information about your parenting program to jerrybednarowski@new.rr.com and it may be shared in a future issue of this newsletter.
