So what could a Million social aware butterflies do?
I'm listening what can we do together...#ACEAwareNation #homelessness #love #kindness @Prev_Justice @JohnCarnochan @JonslaterJon @karynmccluskey @glasgowcathcart @KeeganSmith_Law @princess_missy_ @vruscotland @DirectorVRU

If you really must give these little people a label, please make it 'distressed', not 'disruptive'. They are not a 'problem' they are people. Little people. #littlepeoplematter https://t.co/x4dYvUoliK

If you work with children I highly recommend you watch this. It’s so important to keep a child’s wellbeing at the heart of what we do #aceawareness #resilience https://t.co/ehCagbod88

An always available adult in whom you trust - if a child's parents can't or don't take that role, then for the long term benefit of the human being concerned and society as a whole, we need to support nurturing relationships in school #attachment https://t.co/mK082IvNf1

Governments and local authorities too! Decisions made locally can prevent ACEs but only if the understanding is there! Well done again @HighlandCouncil for leading the way! @OrkneyCouncil @ACEAwareNation https://t.co/8RkDFVXb4q
