Because It’s Wrong is relevant today because each year, bullying is on the rise. Few people want to talk about the subject as if it is taboo.
Lydia Greico, the author, was bullied herself in elementary school, as well as in the neighborhood in which she grew up. She feels that bullying is wrong, especially for the victim. Childhood bullies get away with their behavior because parents either don’t see it or are in denial.
Bullying is on the rise all over the world. It has to stop. How are we able to “make America great again” with this kind of behavior? Our president can only do so much. It is up to us to do our part too. Parents need to pay more attention to what their children are doing and what is being done to their children.
This book was written as a teaching tool. Lydia Greico has a master’s degree in occupational studies and is licensed as a psychiatric technician. Psychiatric technicians advocate for people who cannot advocate for themselves. Ms. Greico is now retired from this profession, but she still advocates for those who need it.
Lydia Greico has authored two other books and articles on different subjects. She earned her MA degree from California State University at Long Beach in 2006.
It is the author’s hope that someone will learn from Because It’s Wrong and aid in her campaign against bullying. Without bullying, we can make our children safer and decrease suicides that are the result of this type of treatment. May God bless all the children who were bullied so bad that they saw no other way out but to commit suicide.
