Obviously most kids come out of boarding school OK.

I love how these articles cite trauma studies but ignore resiliency studies. The spun glass theory of the mind, where every external event leaves permanent scars.

That's not to say separation is not distressing. But these kids are tough in a tough world and they've been through worse. They're more damaged by the nonsense that has happened to them in their own countries and by their parents walking them five hundred miles through the desert, and often being raped along the way.
