Is it a good or bad idea to let a 15 year old visit her mom who is in jail for 7 mont

The charge is a check fraud charge and it is a seven month sentence. I am wondering how my wife should prepare and what are some good things to do. And if my 15 year old daughter should visit My daughter she seems to be handling it fine. I told her right away about it and she reacted pretty calmly. I told her mom did the wrong thing and is rightfully serving her punishment. They have a good relationship. The main problem I have is she will see her mom in a jail jumpsuit and see guards and other inmates that could be intimidating. Is that ok for a 15 year old to see" Actually my daughter does not seem scared but instead seems excited and enthusiastic to visit. This is strange to me. Do you find this normal" My daughter seems to find the idea of her mom having to wearing a uniform, sharing a room funny. I wonder why she would think it is funny. My wife says bring her if she would like to and my daughter says she would like to but I don't know if it is a good idea. She hasn't gone yet so we can still discuss it together.
 
Bring her. She is her mother and should be able to see her. I did 6 years for stupidity and, had it not been for family, I would have gotten out a different person ~ a bad person. Also, my 5yr old nephew seeing me in there likely helped him stay out of trouble.

Everyone makes mistakes, but few are caught. Your daughter is likely in the presence of people who have committed felonies on a daily basis, why make the mother an exception? Forgive, assume the experience will be for the better and move forward as a family.
