It's been two and a half months since I started boarding school, I am 16 and my family lives 17 hours plane ride away. I will be going home in 2 weeks and I am wondering whether I should tell my parents I want to quit. I used to love school, loved lessons, loved teachers and my friends.i left thinking there might be something better out there but now I have become depressed and have to keep tears back everyday, I fooled myself into thinking I would fit in with lots of really rich people. My family and I worked so hard to get here and I feel like I have let them down.
I obviously want to go back home but I don't want to disappoint my family and look like a failure but at the same time I want to be happy and I know that I won't be happy here.
What should I tell my parents and how should I tell them?

Do you think your feelings will change after you have given it some time and settled in? If not, I think you need to sit down and have a serious talk with your parents. I know you feel like you are disappointing them, but you also have to look after your own health and wellbeing, and that is what your parents would want to. Tell them the way that you have been feeling and what your plans are. After that, you and your parents can talk about the best way to resolve it.

Is there a reason why you're studying at a boarding school so far from home?
