PEER PRESSURE EDUCATIONAL BOOKS AND VIDEOS

Making your decisions are difficult, but when others get involved and try to pressure you it can be more difficult. Peer pressure is the influence on how you act by people your age or peers like your classmates. It's something everyone has to deal with. Peers influence your life and actions, even if you don't know it. When influenced, maybe you want to do an action, and you just don't have the courage to do it and your friends talk you into it.

Peer Pressure can be divided into two categories; good peer pressure and bad peer pressure. Examples of good peer pressure from adjusted children could be influence in proper and ethical actions, and pressure to be involved in sports and other healthy activities. Examples of bad peer pressure could be influence in the use of drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol, bullying, youth violence, gang violence and criminal activity. The best way for your child to stay away from bad peer pressure is to encourage your child to be friends with kids who will have a positive effect on them.

The reason why peer pressure has a very strong influence on kids is because everyone wants to be liked and popular. If your child feels out of place or is not accepted by their peers, they may give into peer pressure to fit in just to have friends. Most kids are concerned about what other kids think about them, even if they don't admit it. They don't want to be made fun of or rejected by the other children. They may try a cigarette or a sip of alcohol, just to have friends and fit in. Others may go along because they are curious to try something new that others are doing.

Some of our educational books and videos address the fundamentals of peer pressure while others deal with more advanced peer pressure management problems and offer solutions. Our Peer Pressure Resources Store has lots of books and videos here to help deal with peer pressure!
