Professor Glen Palm, child and family studies, has been teaching parenting classes at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-St. Cloud since 1995. His goal is to help incarcerated fathers establish and maintain healthy relationships with their children. Fathers in the weekly classes discuss such topics as communicating with children from a distance. The men can also create DVDs of themselves reading a children’s book, which are sent to their children.
