Beech Brook offers free parenting series to help parents CONNECT with teens and pre-teens

Parents of teens or pre-teens in Cuyahoga County are invited to participate in a free 10-week small group program offered by Beech Brook staff called CONNECT©.

CONNECT© is a 10-week parenting class for parents of pre-teens and teens, ages 11 to 19. The goal of the program is to help parents strengthen their relationship with their teen, enhance their teen’s cooperation with other adults, and help parents receive support from other parents who also have a middle or high schooler.

Mark Groner, Clinical Director of Beech Brook says, “Research shows that strong relationships with parents protect adolescents from risky behavior. Beech Brook wants to help parents in our community connect better with their pre-teens and teens so all can thrive.”

CONNECT© will be offered on Beech Brook’s campus in Pepper Pike (3737 Lander Road) from 6:30-8:00 pm on Tuesday nights. Classes begin on Tuesday, October 18. Dinner is also included.

This program is free based on a grant from the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund. Limited spots are available.

Contact Mark Groner at or 216.513.9657 to register or learn more.
