Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

Peer Relationships in 20878

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 20878

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in 20878

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.
