It is common for children to experience chronic stress or trauma. The term adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, describes these events. These experiences are hard to manage without help from adults and can lead to learning, behavior, and health problems. Recognizing ACEs can help children and families build the tools for success and healthy, positive experiences.
