Stress proliferation theory suggests that parental incarceration may have deleterious intergenerational health consequences. In this study, I use data from the 2011–2012 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) to estimate the relationship between parental incarceration and children’s fair or poor overall health, a range of physical and mental health conditions, activity limitations, and chronic school absence. Descriptive statistics show that children of incarcerated parents are a… 
Associations between parental incarceration and youth mental health conditions: The mitigating effects of adolescent resilience and positive coping strategies

A multilevel model of mechanistic pathways is proposed to stimulate future research on the potential pathways through which parental incarceration could influence children's physical health.
Parental Incarceration and Children's Wellbeing
TLDR
Three other types of interventions are suggested that might help reduce disparities among children of incarcerated parents: programs that strengthen parents' relationships, increase families' economic wellbeing, and treat parents' substance abuse.

Parental Incarceration, Child Adversity, and Child Health: A Strategic Comparison Approach

Programmatic efforts targeting parental incarceration as a means of promoting child health may be enhanced by adequately addressing co-occurring family stressors and child adversities.
Linked Lives in Double Jeopardy: Child Incarceration and Maternal Health at Midlife
TLDR
Using data on 3,159 mothers from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 in a series of lagged dependent variable regression models, it is found that a child’s incarceration is associated with declines in maternal health between ages 40 and 50.
Parental Incarceration and the Transition to Adulthood
The growing literature on the intergenerational consequences of incarceration generally neglects to consider how paternal and maternal incarceration structures offspring's transition to adulthood, a
Paternal Incarceration and Children’s Food Insecurity: A Consideration of Variation and Mechanisms
Despite growing attention to the unintended intergenerational consequences of incarceration, little is known about whether and how paternal incarceration is related to children’s food insecurity. In
The strain of sons' incarceration on mothers' health.
TLDR
Examining the influence of a son's incarceration on his mother's health shows that mothers are more likely to suffer health limitations after a son is incarcerated, and suggests how children's adverse experiences may influence parental well-being, producing further disadvantage across generations.

The rise in mass incarceration, as well as its unequal distribution across the population, may widen inequalities among individuals and families. In this manuscript, I use data from the Fragile
Parental Incarceration and Child Wellbeing: Implications for Urban Families.
TLDR
It is suggested that a large population of children suffers unmet material needs, residential instability, and behavior problems, and may be best addressed by using the point of incarceration as an opportunity for intervention and the administration of age-appropriate social services.

The Impact of Parental Incarceration on the Physical and Mental Health of Young Adults
TLDR
This study suggests exposure to parental incarceration in childhood is associated with health problems in young adulthood, and additional studies are needed to confirm the associations and assess whether adverse experiences and violence exposure in childhood mediate the relationship between parental incarceration history and offspring health problems.

TLDR
The estimated effects of paternal incarceration are stronger than those of other forms of father absence, suggesting that children with incarcerated fathers may require specialized support from caretakers, teachers, and social service providers.

Positive, Negative, or Null? The Effects of Maternal Incarceration on Children’s Behavioral Problems
TLDR
Children of incarcerated mothers are a disadvantaged group that exhibit high levels of caregiver- and teacher-reported behavioral problems, which is consistent with previous research and suggests that the null effects of maternal incarceration are not artifacts of the sample or analytic decisions.
