Visiting a parent in jail

Let's say for some crazy reason your husband or significant other ended up in jail. Would you take the kids to visit them? Why or why not?

    This would be a hard one for me. I would want my child to still know their dad but I have been the kid that visits their dad in jail. It's not fun. I guess it would depend why the other parent was in jail.

      I think I would take them to visit.. but it would be tough, on everyone, no matter how you swing it. It may depend on why they're doing time though. I would want someone to bring my kids to visit me.

        I wouldn't take them to a county jail to see them through glass if be afraid of traumatizing them. But I would take them to a state prison since they have contact visits.
