The State of Relationships, Marriages, And Living Alone in the US
Are more Americans in love than in the past? The Census Bureau doesn’t track that, but it does keep tabs on American relationships. These days, Americans are now less likely to be married and more likely to live alone. When people do marry, they’re doing it later in life than in the past. While a higher percentage of Americans are divorced, a lower percentage are widows. And more than half a million same-sex couples are now married, which wasn’t an option for people in the 1950s.
To Prevent Mass Shootings, Do A Forensic ACES Investigation
Using motive to prevent mass shootings will just get you a useless answer to the wrong question. The right question is: What happened to this person? What happened to a beautiful baby boy to turn him into an 18-year-old killer? Research clearly shows that the road that leads from a precious infant becoming an abused or neglected child who grows up to become a distressed murderer is predictable.
Interconnecting Mental Health and Behavioral Support Improves School Safety
When children experience violence at school, be it bullying or gun violence, the negative consequences of those interactions can follow them for years, often manifesting later as higher rates of absenteeism, lower high school graduation rates, and lower college graduation rates. Early intervention is a key resource in preventing aggressive behaviors from occurring in the first place, and effective early intervention serves to build a positive school climate for all students.
