Abstract: The study was conducted to explore the situation of families of prisoners and gain insight ., into Various problems faced by them. The problems of wives and children in particular were looked into. Explorations in the various aspects concerning children brought worth several interesting facts. Girls seemed to be at a greater disadvantage when compared to boys. Some of them were deprived of family life because their woman hood rendered them vulnerable to certain personal dangers. They were illiterate more often than the boys and less in number in all levels of education. On the whole, it seemed that ‘although mothers tried to give the best opportunity for education to their sons, children's performance in school reduced after fathers' imprisonment. A majority of the children did not aspire to study beyond Standard X. None used his spare time to pursue any meaningful or constructive extra-curricular interest. Many children lacked occupational aspiration. Maternal deprivation rendered some of the working children vulnerable to exploitation.
