The ability to understand your children is an essential parenting skill that many parents do not have. There is quite a lot of literature available on the subject of parenting. You can help yourself by learning and practicing some important parenting skills.. Some of the most important skills requi…red in understanding your child are in communication, observation and patients. If you do not have an established and trusted communication link with your children, it will be much more difficult for you to try and understand them. If you have not established a relationship of trust, compassion and patients when dealing with your children then they may loose confidence and affection for you. They may turn their attention to other more influential persons around them who may encourage them to deceive you whenever the opportunity arises. If your relationship with your spouse is filled with conflict then the potential exists for your children to play one parent against the other.. Children are usually very skillful in finding your weakness and then emotionally manipulating you at their whim and fancy. Being a good parent takes a lot of hard work and dedication. You must be stern but not rigid, you must be gentle but not a softie, you must be loving but not insecure, you must be decisive but not autocratic in other words you must be balanced in your responsibility as an exemplar to your children.

Peer pressure will always affect your child. The best thing to do is give them the freedom to make their own decisions. At the end of the day it's their life, and if you get too involved with their life they will hate you for it.. You just have to trust them to make their own decisions at the end o…f the day. The urge to be a good parent will tell you to try and make them grow up "properly" but once they get to a certain age they will want to determine their own lives. And once that happens you must let them do it. Otherwise you end up with the "moody teenager" that every other parent in the world complains about. ( Full Answer )

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. ( Full Answer )

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." ( Full Answer )
young children will pester their parents over things like toys or cereal because of adverts they've seen which pressure them into being part of something Also adverts constantly tell everyone that you NEED this, or that something will 'save your family from germs' or whatever with a statistic that… says something like '70% of moms use it' which pressures mothers into thinking not only do they want to solve the problem the product offers a solution to, but this is the way they need to go about it gender plays a large roll as well, there are adverts that are smothered in naked ladies worshiping a man because he wears a certain aftershave, and adverts with men staring shamelessly at women because of the clothes they're wearing. sex sells, and its also an excellent thing to use to pressure people into purchasing things they don't even want and make it feel like they need it too because they supposedly want/need sex some adverts also make you feel like you're part of a club, like the gillette adverts that make-out that only real men use their products, this makes men (incredibly sensitive creatures) feel they need to buy gillette products they might not even want. Equally there are millions of yoghurt products that make 'us ladies feel better' blahblahblah, they pat woman on the head like it's some sort of weird book club mothers meeting and this makes women purchase things they don't need but might want if their stomach is upset. I hope this is helpful I just saw your question and remembered doing similar in school. ( Full Answer )
