Peer pressure has a large effect on teens everday choices. Peer pressure can be broken down into two groups; good peer pressure and bad peer pressure.. Good peer pressure is …being pushed into somthing that you don't have the courage to do but is reletively good for you. Teens under good peer pressure will be urged NOT to do somthing because it was not in their best interest.. Bad peer pressure is being coerced into doing something because your friends said you should. People that aren't real friends may suggest something unhealthy, such as drugs.. One possible classification of friends may be as follows:. Not Your Friend - People you usually don't associate with under normal circumstances. . Acquaintance - This group of people includes those that you might see in school, but you don't associate with out of school. You might occasionally cross their path out of school, but you wouldn't normally seek them out. . Wannabe Friends - These are people you might want to be friends with for some selfish reasons, such as hoping to be more popular. People who fall into this category are never your true friends because the foundation for the friendship does not have a solid basis. . True Friends - These are the ones in the small, close group of people that you confide in and you know that they have your best interest in mind. The people in this group are those whose influence on your life makes you a better person. . Peer pressure may influence us in a number of ways, including our:. Fashion choice . Alcohol and other drug use . Decision to have a boyfriend/girlfriend . Choice of who our friends are . Academic performance

Example of peer pressure-. Dope head: Hey little jimmy wanna ciggarete. Little Jimmy: Uh i dont know if i should, my dad says ciggaretes are bad for you and my teacher says …i could get cancer from them.. Dope head: awe come one that only happens if you do it for years, and besides dont you wanna fit in.. Little Jimmy: Well...yea, i guess. Dope Head: then take a hit, besides all the cool kids are doin it itll make you real popular. Little Jimmy: Well....okay but only once.. (little jimmy takes a hit and gets addicted to the nicatine, eventually he does it every day and dies at age 21 of lung cancer). That is peer pressure and it could affect your life in certain circumstances....

Peer pressure tends to have more of an effect on children with low self-esteem. If a child feels compelled to fit in, the teen may do things that go against his or her beliefs… simply to be part of the group. Peer pressure can lead to experimentation with drugs and alcohol, sex, skipping school, and various high-risk behaviors. If you notice a sudden change in your child's appearance, clothing, and attitude, especially if accompanied by secretive behavior, he or she may be succumbing to the influences of peers. You should be especially alert to sudden changes in the friends who make up their core peer group. An unexplained change in the type of friends you child associates with would indicate that your child is vulnerable to new influences that may not be positive.
Peer pressure is influence that a peer group or individual exertsthat encourages others to change their attitudes, values, orbehavior to conform to group norms.Example: Lets s…ay I was lookingfor a school club to join. Then I find out that a few of my friendsare in the Art Club and they tell me that its a lot of fun and Iget to do cool activities, so then I join the club. Their peerpressure affected me because most of them were in that club andthey told me everything I get to do. Answer2: There is strong pressures from one's age group to try andinfluence them how to act in life. There is peer pressure to usedrugs, smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, engage in bullying andsexual immorality and the list goes on and on. Peer pressure is inhigh school and all schools and age groups. Adults want to beaccepted by their peers too. No one-young or old-it does not feelgood to be rejected. No one likes to be made fun of for beingdifferent and not giving in to peer pressure. If we allow ourselvesto just give in to pressure to fit in, we could drastically affectour own future. When we lack confidence, feeling unsure ofourselves, peer pressure can be very hard to resist, but it can bedone. Peer pressure can cause some to become discouraged, sad,depressed and even suicidal. Each us us could do well to prepareourselves and our children ahead of time for when peer pressurecomes. At times, people might be tempted to conform to their peers'standards just to avoid their disapproval, but that would be amistake. When you cave in to peer pressure, you become like amindless robot because you allow other people to control you. Whylet them have that kind of power?-Don't let the world around yousqueeze you into its own mold." (Romans 12:2, The New Testament inModern English)
it makes them feel like they have to commit to something they don'tnecessarily want to commit to, so it can result in: -shame, because they gave into the peer pressure in the …first place(which is not their fault but most people after giving into peerpressure kick themselves for it) -it can often make them feel stranded, obviously depending on whatthey've been pressured into, but in many cases people that havebeen peer pressured into something feel that the thing they've beenpeer pressured into is weighing them down from doing anything elseat all/doing anything effectively -people who have been peer pressured into something are oftenterrified that they may lose friends over, either going againstwhat they really think or feel, or because they feel guilty forwhat they were pressured into overall peer pressure affects the way a person feels aboutthemselves.

Whylet them have that kind of power?-Don't let the world around yousqueeze you into its own mold." (Romans 12:2, The New Testament inModern English) Think about your identity. Ask yourself, 'What kindof person do I want to be?' Then think about the pressure you arefacing and ask, 'What would that kind of person do in thissituation?'-Bible principle: 2 Corinthians 13:5. Think beyond thepresent. If you are in school, in a few years-or even months-thevery people you are trying to impress may not even be in your life. How you feel about yourself has a huge impact on how you deal withpeer pressure. If you have self-confidence, you don't care whatothers think about you-and peer pressure suddenly becomesunimportant." Use positive pressure, make your close friends those who think likeyou. When peers/friends try to get you to use drugs, smoke and dostupid things, get new friends. For instance, if a schoolmate daresyou to accept a cigarette from him, you could say, "No thanks" andthen add, "I thought you were too smart to smoke!" Do you see howthe pressure is returned? Rather than your having to explain whyyou do not smoke, your peer is compelled to think about why hedoes. What if you must face a situation head-on? Suppose a peerasks in disbelief, "Are you still a virgin?" In reply to thequestion about being a virgin, you might simply say, "Yes I am,"or, "That's really a personal matter."
because your friends are the people pressuring you, you dont want to say no as they might not like you anymore. in thiss way peer pressure can effect your choises as you may f…eel that you have to say yes to whatever they want you to do. even if you dont want to do it.
A child or adult may be peer pressured to look skinnier and more like the celebrities. Therefore they may refuse to eat certain types of food or not eat food. This may also le…ad on to food disorders. As well as that a child or adult may be peer pressured to be a vegetarian or vegan. If a child doesn't go to McDonalds or a fast food restaurant like that they may get pressured to if they are with a group of friends who want to go.
because other people pressure them in to doing things they dont want to do. They'll threaten them and just keep going on at them continuously until they do whatever it is the …want them to do.
If its negative peer pressure, like people are telling you that you're going to do bad, then it can give you negative thoughts about your own performance which will make you v…ery nervous and so you'll probably mess up. If its positive peer pressure, like someone encouraging or convincing you, then it can give you positive thoughts and help you feel confident about your performance.
