Book Image Not Available
Overview
“Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today” is a glimpse into the minds of 10 different children with varying disabilities through the eyes of one of their closest friends. The author has worked directly with these children and because most of them can’t speak for themselves, he has given us an idea of what they might possibly say. All of the scenarios discussed in this book are based on actual events. While some of it may be disturbing, the hope is that the reader will learn what can occur in an effort to make things better in the future. This one-of-a-kind book is a must-read for anyone socially, emotionally, or professionally linked to any special needs person.
Description
Bullying of a child in school isn’t always the act of a student. Parents of special needs children should be able to send their loved ones to school thinking that their child will be safe, educated and cared for by individuals that are adequately trained and willing to always do their jobs in an appropriate manner; unfortunately, that is not always the case. After nearly a decade of working in schools that service special needs children and witnessing and reporting far too many cases of bullying, abuse and neglect at the hands of staff, Richard S. Stripp, Sr. wrote this book. The public must be made aware of what can and does happen to these innocent children. More must be done to protect them. “Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today” is a glimpse into the minds of 10 different children with varying disabilities through the eyes of one of their closest friends.

About the author
For his entire life, the man affectionately known as “Mr. Rick” has been selflessly giving his all to help others. His empathy, understanding, and compassion have combined with his natural ability to make people smile to form the perfect mix of tools for him to use toward his goal of making this world a better place. He has endured many hardships in his life, and while some might use them as a crutch, Mr. Rick has used them as motivation. Over the last decade, Mr. Rick has turned his efforts toward helping children with disabilities. After many years, he has written this emotional and educational book in an attempt to use his experiences as both a precautionary tale and a guideline for the future. “Mommy, I Wish I Could Tell You What They Did To Me In School Today” has enabled Mr. Rick to become a voice for the voiceless. He has already touched, changed, and helped so many lives; through this book, he hopes to continue to do so.
