Children of all ages are able to attend visiting sessions, as long as there are not any restrictions or intervention orders preventing them to visit the offender.
Parents, guardians and caregivers should think carefully about whether it is best for the child to visit prison.
- Is the child visiting someone who is important to them?
- Will the visit help the child maintain their relationship with that person?
- How will the child benefit from the visit?
- Is there a good reason for the visit from the child’s point of view?
- Are there other ways the child could have contact that might be better for them? (Would they rather send a letter or a picture, or have a phone call?)
