What are ACE’s and how do they effect a child’s development and chances of success as an adult?
The term “ACEs” is an acronym for Adverse Childhood Experiences. There is a powerful, persistent correlation between the more ACEs experienced and the greater the chance of poor outcomes later in life.
The ACE’s Parenting Program provides parents with education about the effects of toxic stress, how to be trauma informed and build resiliency, how emotional intelligence, mindfulness and your own personal love language can help you better understand yourself, your child and your relationship, self regulation and coping strategies, practical solutions to parenting issues, brain science and how it is related to trauma, how adverse experiences may be effecting your child’s life, health and behavior and what to do about it.
If your child has experienced trauma or trauma is impacting your ability to parent, this FREE educational program may help.
The ACE’s program begins Wednesday, September 18 from 5-7pm. We meet every Wednesday for five weeks. Free childcare and meals are provided.
To register, please call We Care at 815-942.6389.
The ACE’s Parenting program is made possible by a grant from the Gerald D. Abel Endowment and the Community Foundation of Grundy County.
