Rate this:
More than 2.5 million American kids have a parent in jail or prison-that's about 1 in every 28 kids. It's a tough situation for any family, and especially so for the kids. This book looks at the past and present of incarceration in the United States, while offering encouragement and advice for kids who are eagerly waiting for their parents' release. "What is a family?" What used to seem like a simple question has grown ever more complex. The set explores the different types of family structures that have become increasingly common in the 21st century. The books provide not only objective demographic information but also friendly, accessible advice for kids with "nontraditional" families.
