I spent 19 years of my life serving the public as a peace officer, first as police and then 10 years as an undercover narcotics detective. Trauma, critical incidents, emotions. I told myself I had to be strong and deal with it. Because of the stigma and belief that asking for help was a sign of weakness I resorted to unhealthy coping mechanisms that subsequently resulted in the loss of everything I once had passion for. It took me losing it all before I got help. 8 years ago I began my new life in recovery and found a way out. If you have the courage to raise you hand now you won't have to suffer in silence any longer.

Peer Relationships in San Diego

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 San Diego

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 San Diego

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. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in San Diego or for a San Diego peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in San Diego and peer relationship advice.
