    DescriptionWhen a parent is sent to prison, what’s put in place to support the child? Not a lot according to this expert. There are more than 43,000 children in Australia who have a parent in prison. And with Australia’s prison population rapidly rising, that number is steadily increasing. But according to Dr Catherine Flynn from Monash University, Australia is failing these children.
