- When parents have repeated contact with the justice system (i.e., recidivism), children are more likely to react negatively
- Recidivism tends to be high in the US, but when parents engage in educational experiences in prison or jail and when they have supports after release, recidivism is lower
- Recidivism is also lower when incarcerated parents have more contact with their children during their time inside
- There are many barriers individuals face during reentry from jail or prison, like being prevented from exercising their right to vote, barriers to finding housing and employment, food insecurity, and limited access to treatment
