This paper examines two themes pertaining to children of incarcerated parents in Norway. The first is the visiting room of a Norwegian prison. The paper briefly describes conditions in and provides photographs of the children's corner of the visiting room at Norway's Oslo Fengsel Prison. The corner was established in 1998 with toys and fresh paint to facilitate children's visits with their fathers, but recent visits revealed a lack of care by prison officials for the area. The second is "Families in Trouble, What Do We Tell the Children? And What Is Right To Say?" The paper briefly describes a workshop and prison project to help children and fathers cope with parental imprisonment. (EV)
