(NEWS CENTER) -- The word bullying gets thrown around a lot, but do we know what it really means? Are we using it correctly?

Tuesday morning, Jackie Ward will define bullying and tell you the story of one woman who says her daughter was bullied so badly she had to leave Schenck High School and transfer to Stearns High School.

Sarah Cram never thought sending her daughter to the same school she went to as a student would end like this. After nearly five years of being relentlessly picked on, Sarah says she took her concerns to Schenck's administration. Principal John Farrington says he spoke with the person who Sarah said lead the bullying against her daughter, but based on how the state defines bullying, he couldn't do anything about the boy's actions against Sarah's daughter.

Since Sarah's daughter Abby transferred to Stearns last month, she hasn't had any trouble with any of the other students. Jackie will take an in-depth look at this story Tuesday morning, but on Wednesday morning, we want to hear your concerns about bullying.

Deb Landry is a parenting coach who specializes in bullying and how to help your child deal with it. She'll be in the studio on Wednesday morning starting at 5:30 answering your questions on this topic.
