He also forgets that those families and their environment are not necessarily ideal either.

I don't mean to blame the people who are making an effort to raise the child, or children, left behind by the incarcerated parent and to visit the prison. They are doing their best, or at least they are doing something. I just mean that the reality is more complex and it's not necessarily as if everything would be so great if only the inmate was not in the picture.

It really depends on the particular individuals and situations, because sometimes the family and the child would really be better off without the incarcerated parent, but sometimes that parent's contribution is still better than nothing.
