Children who have a parent in prison face extraordinary challenges.

Pat Nolan is vice president of Prison Fellowship and he joined CBN News from Washington, D.C., to discuss why it is so important for children to have contact with their parents when they are incarcerated.

Nolan said that parents are often serving jail time hundreds of miles away from their children -- and that's a problem.
