the charge is a check fraud charge and it is a seven month sentence. My daughter she seems to be handling it fine. I told her right away about it and she reacted pretty calmly. I told her mom did the wrong thing and is rightfully serving her punishment. They have a good relationship. The main problem I have is she will see her mom in a jail jumpsuit and see guards and other inmates that could be intimidating. I've talked to three people about whether I should bring my daughter, my wife, someone who works at the jail, and my daughter herself. Shockingly, they all said they would be in favor of bringing her but I am not sure I should follow their advice my wife says bring her if she would like to come but don't if she doesn't want to. I would think she would say don't bring her at all which is shocking. Still my wife is the one that will be there and will be used to the environment so obviously she may not be right in this instance I talked to my 15 year old daughter about it of course and she says she would like to go .Actually my daughter does not seem scared but instead seems excited and enthusiastic to visit. This is strange to me. Do you find this normal? My daughter seems to find the idea of her mom having to wearing a uniform, sharing a room a little funny. Since my daughter is young though she probably won't immediately know what is the right thing to do and I talked to the person that worked at the jail, she said that since my daughter is a teenagers it is perfectly fine to take her. She also said use it as a learning experience (what does that mean do you think), ask your wife to be honest about what happened, and to simply present it as a punishment for wrong doing. What do you think about That. You could the guard probably wants to scare kids though She hasn't gone yet so we can still discuss it together ​
