Emotional abuse (such as telling a child he's stupid) and lying (covering up when a child goes missing), not gaslighting. It's serious but it's pretty straightforward and obvious, it's not particularly manipulative.

The movie takes place at a juveline detention camp. The kids talk about their home lives which weren't all healthy. The children at the camp are also put to work digging holes and treated poorly by the people running the camp.

One character is said to be an orphan and another has a missing parent, but no deaths of parents are shown or discussed. Some of the kids are pretty convinced their parents don't care about them, though (with good reason, as far as we know).

Mr. Pendanski refers to the boys with their legal names, rather than their nicknames. When Stanley innocently calls Armpit by his name, he gets physical and corrects him. It's not given the same weight as an actual dead naming, but could be triggering to someone with that kind if trauma.

Not literally crying, but a joke is made of one adult character being sensitive. He's pretty awful to kids so in context, them making fun of him is justified (it's "punching up").

A character gets scratched on the face and it looks a little infected. There's a montage of Kissing Kate Barlow that shows the men she murdered. Zero gets a cut on his hands trying to pull Stanley up with a shovel, it's on screen briefly.
