"Breaking the Cycle: Building Stronger Families"

That's the theme of this year's Annual Report, but Beech Brook has been actually breaking the cycle since we were founded in 1852.

At Beech Brook, we are often called upon to be cycle-breakers. The term "cycle-breaker" refers to a person intentionally changing multi-generational family patterns. A cycle-breaker will need to dive into the origins of a person’s and their family's behaviors to root out unhealthy patterns. Cycle-breaking involves both deep introspective work and intentional behavioral change.

Just as we've always done, Beech Brook is being called upon again to "break the cycle" and address the newest source of trouble for today's children - technology.

One way we’ll be doing this is through a new initiative, an online parent educational series titled, Parenting Beyond the Screen, being launched later this month.

This new virtual parenting series is designed to empower parents with the knowledge and tools needed to ensure safe, educational, and healthy online experiences for their children starting in kindergarten through 12th grade. It's a game-changer for families navigating the digital world!

Here's how you can help:


1. Sign up for a class: If you are a parent, sign up for Parenting Beyond the Screen, Part 1 or 2 - or both! Gain valuable insights and strategies for a safer digital environment for your kids.

2. Spread the word: Even if you aren't attending, you can make a significant impact by sharing this program with your friends and family.

3. Be a community advocate: If you are passionate about digital parenting and want to become a community advocate for this cause, please let us know. Your support in promoting this initiative within your networks will be invaluable.

Program Details:

  • Part 1: Building a Tech-Resilient Generation - Oct 25
  • Part 2: Power of Relationships: Talking Online Safety - Nov 29

- Flexible scheduling options for all parents
