What is your “Natural High”?
peer pressure

Peer Pressureis an influence that a peer group, observers or individual exerts that encourages others to change their attitudes, values, or behaviors to conform the group norms.

  • How does peer pressure effect decision making?
  • Discuss: Positive peer pressure vs. Negative peer pressure
    • Positive Peer pressure can impact someone for the good, help them be a better person, athlete, and feel better about themselves.
    • Negative Peer pressure can influence people to do the wrong thing, make poor decisions, and get into trouble.

resisting negative peer pressure

Body Language and Assertive Refusal

  • Effective refusal skillsinvolve a three-step process.
  • State your position. Give an honest reason for your response.
  • Offering a legitimate reason will help strengthen your refusal.
  • Suggest alternatives. Your suggestion is most effective if it takes you away from the dangerous or unpleasant situation.
  • Stand your ground. Use strong body language and maintain eye contact.
Resisting Negative Peer Pressure
friendships and pressure

1. Find out what you are really good at

Maybe it's playing an instrument or a sport. Maybe it's spending time outside, or starting a collection. The reason peer pressure works is because sometimes you feel like being accepted by your friends is the most important thing in the world. If you have other things going on in your life that make you feel awesome, you won't depend so much on what your friends think of you.

3. You may need to make new friends

If you started pursuing new interests, try to find new friends who have those same interests. There are probably other people who are avoiding the same things you are.

2. Evaluate your friends

Are they starting to do more and more stuff that you don't want to do? Maybe you can talk to them about their new habits. Sometimes people just want to explore new things...other times they do those things because they feel stressed out by something else. Are you constantly having to resist bad decisions around them?
