HERE IS THE SOLUTION TO HANDLE PEER PRESSURE
Trying to seem cool, wanting to be liked, fear of criticism – these are some of the reasons why children give into peer pressure. It is not something we can escape from; as long as we remain social animals, all of us are subject to peer pressure at all stages in our lives. Adults have come quite a distance in life to have some understanding and clarity about their needs, desires, and capabilities and hence are better equipped to handle peer pressure without giving in or buckling up. But the condition and mentality of children is way different especially those of adolescents. Teens and preteens start developing certain notions and have an utmost longing to be appreciated and liked. Coupled with their raging hormones, their emotions can play truant if not channelized in the right direction.
