Parent to Parent: Raising Children from Prison entails the painful and real emotions a parent experiences while incarcerated and separated from their children. The book explains how an incarcerated parent must discover, find, and explore himself before he can be beneficial to his children. It involves the personal sharing of the author's story, and how he used many resources including, but not limited to, self-reflection and self-examination in order to overcome the many past hurts he experienced. He discusses the importance of maintaining mental and physical health, how to achieve it, and in other chapters, he discusses the difference between discipline and punishment, the importance of communication, and healing, forgiveness, and love. Also, the author offers more in-depth discussions as well as techniques and ideas of how parents can be actively involved with their children while incarcerated. Once a parent begins to make changes in his/her own life, then they can begin to make a positive influence in their children's lives. In addition, the author has provided a recommended reading list as well as examples of some of his own correspondence while incarcerated between himself and his children. Also added is a chart of "ages and growth stages for children" as well as a list of support groups for incarcerated parents.
