Separation due to the primary imprisonment may be a damaging form of separation for children because it is unexpected, sometimes violent way of arrest, unexplained, and often childrenare severely restricted to contacts with imprisoned parents. The research findings showed that: The children of imprisoned parents can isolate themselves and have little interest in friends and activities. They may be reluctant or refuse to leave home, go to school, or participate in the activities they once enjoyed. If a child's caretaker shows excessive stress, the child can take on adult roles or responsibilities, for example trying to be a "parent" for younger brothers and sisters. While trauma of parental imprisonment causes emotions and complex needs for each child, the impact severity will depend on a number of elements that influence as moderators of situations that will be shown by the children. The children of incarcerated parents usually experience intense feelings as they struggle to cope with many losses - not just their inmates but also the loss of their former life. This paper will provide a review of literature on emotional experiences of children with imprisoned parents. The most common feelings among these children are sadness, confusion and fear, abandonment, guilt, shame, and anger. This study had a time span from March 2013 to August 2017. The research project included a search on electronic records; bibliography review, contacts with people and groups of interests. The data was collected through the registration of abstracts, titled in scientific journals, dissertations, books and reports. The variables included in this review were coded in the main words that were deemed valid to pass the qualifying criteria. No response rate was applied to this study.
