Reply to "ACES/Resilience Survey w/Parents"

I say go for it. It's a great way for people to look at their own lives, rather than keep it as an abstract concept. Also, if you have a large enough group, doing instant polling through online software such as Poll Everywhere, is a great way for people to see that we're all swimming in the same ACEs ocean.

And, that's a bridge to people understanding four very important aspects of this ACEs science:

  • They weren't born bad.
  • They had no control over what happened to them as children.
  • The things they did to cope were normal and expected, even if coping involved smoking, drinking, having inappropriate sex, doing drugs, overeating, doing thrill sports, overachieving, engaging in violence, stealing, etc.
  • And they can change. 

Here's an article about an organization that educated parents about ACEs science: https://www.acesconnection.com...-to-parent-with-aces
