How Many ACEs Are You Holding?

This documentary aims to educate our students about the topic of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). Most educators, counselors and school administrators have, at this point, participated in a professional development presentation including information about ACEs. Now it is time for the students to understand the impact of the generational cycle of family dysfunction specific to the 10 ACEs studied. This work includes several testimonials from adults sharing what their childhood was like enduring this family dysfunction. It should be noted that since these testimonies are very personal and emotional there is language included that otherwise would have been edited out. Woven within these stories is professional commentary so that participants can understand how these ACEs can or is already impacting their lives.

The nation must begin to understand that the parenting, we receive as children, is the foundation on which our adult life will be built upon. Parenting education must become an essential piece of our educational system. Future generations are depending on this.

What does the program include?

We’ve taken 10 very common frustrating parenting situations and put them into a program, so that we can begin discussing with our youth the realities of parenting. This program includes:

  1. Teacher/Instructors manual meeting all national curriculum standards
  2. Manual also includes student worksheets and pre/post student surveys
  3. 10 parenting scenario videos. Each parenting video situation is approx. five-minutes in length. There is one video situation for each of the 10 chapters of this program

The teacher/instructor would begin the class by showing one video. Each scenario will escalate to the point of abuse, neglect, or dysfunction. The video is then stopped and the teacher/instructor can turn to class asking….what went wrong? What other choices did the parents have? What will you do?
