Apollo Nida -- My Kids Shouldn't Be Around Me ... At Least for Now

EXCLUSIVE

Apollo Nida isn't upset that his kids won't visit him in prison... fact is, he doesn't want them there.

Apollo's been moved to a new facility and his children -- 2 year-old Dylan and 5 year-old Ayden -- haven't gotten approval to see him.  Also Phaedra Parks thinks seeing him behind bars is too much for the kids.

Turns out Apollo and Phaedra are in agreement ... Sources close to Apollo tell us he also believes it would be too traumatic for the kids to see him there so the best solution is FaceTime.

Apollo's serving an 8-year sentence and he thinks when his kids get a little older they can come visit.
