Happy Valentine's Day - Tips For Those With Loved Ones In Jail
To many, Valentine's Day is a happy and exciting day filled with love and joy. To others, it can be a depressing reminder of another holiday without their loved one.
If you are unfortunately planning for another holiday with your loved one in jail, here are some tips to cope:
1. Notes, Cards, Letters and Photos
One of the greatest pains of being in prison is the lack of human connection and losing touch with the outside world. By sending your loved one notes, cards, letters and photos you can remind them that they are loved and cared for and reassure their positivity in the process.
2. Books, Magazines and Newspapers
Sending books and magazines for your loved one to read can really help them to past the time.
While most American prisoners are provided the bare minimum necessities, many are in desperate need of other food and hygienic items. By sending just a few extra dollars to your loved one, you can help improve their overall quality of life.
These are just a few suggestions to help ease the pain of distance, but nothing will ever replace the feeling of being reunited with your loved one in person.
