One in 5 kids is bullied ever year -- 1 in 5! -- and that number is even higher in our recent iVillage survey. Nearly 8 out of 10 kids aged 3 to 18 whose parents answered our poll say they have been bullied. And while most parents are confident their child would tell them if they were bullied, a majority in our poll said they don't feel confident their child's school can keep them safe from bullies.
So what more can schools do to protect our kids? What more can parents, lawmakers and community leaders do? Here's your chance to get some answers.
The White House will answer your questions during a live Q-and-A with iVillage as part of a special White House Conference on Bullying Prevention. We are getting an exclusive interview with Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services, and we need your help.
Share your questions here, and look for the answers live on iVillage.com and whitehouse.gov on Thursday at 1:15 p.m. ET. At that time, you also can submit your questions live on Twitter! Just reply to @iVillage using hashtag #whbullying from 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. ET Thursday, which is when we'll interview Sebelius.
Meanwhile, check out how one school is fighting bullying with rap music.
Raising awareness is one way to fight bullying. Another way is working together to figure out what are the best ways to rid bullies from all of our children's lives. Please join iVillage as we use this forum to try and get answers to help all of us.
