Default Need feedback: Is it really HARD to stay out when on parole?

Its been a nightmare enough having to watch my son be incarcerated for almost a year. He has a two year sentence but I think parole eligible after half the time, coming up in three or four months. I have this awful fear that once in the system, its so easy to land back. People with experience, or knowledge, Is it really HARD to stay out when on parole? Will the small things land him right back ? Sometimes it leaves me feeling very scared .. I get that its up to the individual but really I just don't know what to expect. Trying not to project into the future and take things a day at a time. The thought of him going back in again makes me feel hopeless. any thoughts appreciated

Until someone who knows first-hand posts here, you're stuck with me :-)

From my reading it sounds like being detail-oriented and organized and staying away from sketchy situations and sketchy people puts the odds solidly in the parolee's favor.
