Ask the Inmate

What do they do if u have kids come in to vist? Do they have a play room or something for the little kids?

It all depends upon the security level of the facility. If it is a minimum security prison, then there will be places for the kids to play with their father. If it is higher levels, then it is much more strict about keeping the kids from roaming around - it's tough for them to sit still for long visits, but you don't know why certain inmates are there and the guards are mindful that kids could be targets, too. So its about their safety as much as anything.
