Don't punish kids, help them!

After moving across country from seattle to Boston I was having a really hard time with everything, but most of all adjusting to my new highschool. I started my freshman year at this school and I didn’t feel wanted.  I put so much pressure on myself to be wanted by them that I could not even focus on my grades. That was a year of a lot of tears, and anger. My parents would get emails saying that I did not do the assignment, or that I failed quiz a, or failed paper b. The staff and the teachers belittled me and treated me like I was a child.
