Resisting peer pressure



Teenagers often encounter peer pressure in which they feel pressured to do things that may be harmful to them. However, adults also can be pressured, especially when it comes to college campuses or the workplace. Find an article in the St. Petersburg Times or tbt* where peer pressure may have played a role. In your journal, write about the peer pressure you see, read and hear about in your community. Explore why it is important for people to be prepared for situations where they may feel pressured to do something that may have negative effects on their life. Share your thoughts here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
