"I believe the nature of the human condition is that individuals are complex entities.

Peer Relationships in 18104

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in 18104

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem.

Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.
