Research to date provides little information about effects on children when fathers return home from prison or jail, especially whether children’s behavioral problems persist when the father returns. To help fill this gap, this brief explores children’s behaviors when a father is incarcerated and when he is released. Authors seek to understand whether the negative child outcomes from parental incarceration persist even after parents return home. (Author abstract modified)
