ACEs are what happened to us. They do not need to define what happens next. The effects of ACEs can be addressed. You can have hope. You can feel better. And we can all take steps to prevent ACEs from being passed down to the next generation.
We can write our own story
No matter what happened to us in the past, we have power in the present to shape our future.
There's power in practice
Simple practices, like many of the ones shared here, have been scientifically proven to help rewire our brains, calm our nervous systems, and help us heal.
Prevention is possible
Children are both sensitive and resilient. Parents and caring adults can prevent new ACEs from occurring and act as a buffer to protect children from the effects of adverse experiences.
