“Be a Man Tyrone: What Happens When Daddy Goes to Prison”
“Be a Man Tyrone: What Happens When Daddy Goes to Prison” is my new children’s book about parental incarceration and its effects on children.
Well over half of all people incarcerated in the United States (1.2 million of about 2.3 million people) are parents of children under the age of 18. Over 1 million incarcerated parents are FATHERS. (Pew Charitable Trusts)
Daddy messed up.
Daddy goes away and tells his young son Tyrone to be a man while he’s gone.
Daddy is punished for the crime he has committed. And so is Tyrone.
We tend to forget that daddy isn’t the only one that does time for the crime.
We often put pressure on our young boys to “be men” while their fathers do time. But we rarely think about the detrimental effects of forcing boys to “be men” too soon. This book explores these effects in the form of a children’s book. The story surrounds Tyrone, a boy whose father is in prison. Read the book to find out how Tyrone is effected by his father’s incarceration and why being a man too soon is so detrimental for our children. Share this story with your children to shed awareness on parental incarceration, whether they are children of incarcerated parents or not. It’s important for ALL children to remain children as long as they can.
