AP Month Family Photo Gallery

Show us your family at work – the family work of creating positive childhood experiences.

The AP Month theme this year is “PeaCE Over ACES” because we’re working toward creating important building blocks for healthy development.

Positive childhood experiences are based on caring relationships between children and adults in their lives.

These deep relationships are the foundations of resilience and allow us to bounce back from adversity. Examples of positive childhood experiences are:

      • Being able to talk openly to a family member or as a family about feelings and feel heard, accepted and supported.
      • Belief that family stood by them during difficult times.
      • Feeling safe and protected by an adult in the home.
