I know from my child advocacy class that when you’re in poverty you don’t have many educational opportunities which would be able to raise you out of poverty so it cycles, becoming intergenerational. Also, people who have a high ACES score usually are engaged in more risky behaviors, such as smoking, excessive drinking and gambling which costs money and keeps them in poverty.
