Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a program about adverse childhood experiences and learned the tremendous impact these can have on a person throughout the rest of his or her life. They can have a major effect on a person’s health and opportunities for success, as well as having the person perpetuate a cycle of violence.

It was a real eye-opener about how the back stories of children and adolescents can affect their performance in school and their chances for a bright future.
