"You try to have everything in your life go a certain way. You feel out of control and get upset when things do not work out. Every time you try to complete a project or organize your life, something goes awry. People tell you to relax and everything will work out, but you are not so sure. Your partner gets mad at you because you are unavailable or you are snapping at them all the time. You don't even know if therapy can help, but you're willing to do whatever it takes."

Peer Relationships in San Francisco

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 Francisco

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 Francisco

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 Francisco or for a San Francisco peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in San Francisco and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in San Francisco and peer relationship counselors.
