Peer pressure during teenage – Teenagers are most inclined towards their friends. Parents, friends, peer collectively create a peer pressure on the person. It is very important for a child to cope up with this pressure.
Teenage is one time when the child is just stepping out of the cocoon to see the whole new life ahead of them.
This is the age of curiosity, inquisitiveness, impulsiveness and much more.
At this time the teenagers go a little aloof, especially from parents and it is very important for the parents to develop a proper communication with them but at the same time respect their privacy.
Also at this age, teenagers are most inclined towards their friends.
Parents, friends, peer collectively create a peer pressure on the person. It is very important for a child to cope up with this pressure. The way he or she deals with it right now, actually sets up the time ahead for them.
This is the time when they have higher energies at another level that can be easily manipulated. They are just like in a state of that mud which can be moulded in any shape according to the time. You come across all kinds of friends in your life and the friends at this inspire you the most. They have a strong impact of their friends and other seniors of how they live, what they do, what they wear etc. It is the peer that makes a lot out of it and then the teenagers also feel like being the same.
It is very important for the person to cope up with the peer pressure doing something just for the heck of it. At this age, many innocent children try out things like drugs, drinking, first time sex, not out of curiosity but also at times due to the peer pressure of their friends and others.
So to be a part of the group and in the league of being called “cool”, most of the time they try out things just for the heck of it.
And then the time comes when that one friend who made you through a lot of things makes you question of whether being a boon or a bane? At times they are the one who are just the right person to have and also be the one when you want them the most. But many a times a situation comes when they may take a toll on your life and may take advantage of you. The situation might become very complicated and this makes you bring out the worst of yourself and make you someone that you never want to be.
So, proper decision making is very important for the teenagers.
Being around people who really help you bring out the best of yourself and also accept you the way you are, just the real friends who will always think good about yourself.
This in turn can help you feel confident about yourself and make things work good in your favour.
