The ACE Study is the largest and longest research study ever conducted that seeks to monitor connections between long term well-being and chronic stress caused by exposure to early adversity. The study looked at multiple categories of childhood abuse and neglect and measures for household dysfunction like parental mental illness, domestic violence, substance abuse and high-conflict separation/divorce. The study started as a partnership between Kaiser Permanente and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
After more than 20 years of longitudinal and latitudinal research the ACEs Study confirms that the Toxic Stress that accumulates in children exposed to adverse childhood experiences, carry that toxicity into adulthood. Unlike manageable stress, Toxic Stress forces long-term changes in brain architecture and organ systems. ACEs put children at a higher risk for emotional problems, developmental issues learning difficulties, and long-term health problems.

Increasing Piece of Mind
Despite our best intentions, we know some parents will end up in court. That’s why we’ve designed coParenter to safely document communication and engagement between coParents with easy export for third-party review. This means judges, attorneys and validated 3rd parties can access authenticated evidence of every message, coParenting request and attempt to resolve disagreements without court intervention.
Not only could this type evidence dramatically reduce ‘He Said/She Said’ that regularly frustrates courts, but these records could also have profound impact and influence on:
