"Have you been feeling anxious, angry, hurt, sad? It's not just one thing that happened in your life. It's the build up of many things, relationships and events, that have left you feeling this way. You feel as if your mind runs away with you and find it so hard to gain control of it and your reactions. It's just not worth the fight anymore. But before you give up and surrender to your thoughts, there is still hope."

"Sometimes we need to go through a dark overgrown forest to get to a beautiful meadow full of wildflowers. Other times we might hike a rigorous trail to get to a stunning waterfall or a peaceful overlook. Beauty and challenges are intertwined in life. The experience of counseling is like this. You might find yourself in a dark or difficult place, yearning for the serene meadow of wildflowers. Maybe there are unresolved issues in your past, or you are struggling with some aspects of daily living, or maybe you are working toward some goals for your future that seem impossible. Going this journey alone can be overwhelming. "

Peer Relationships in San Marcos

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 Marcos

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 Marcos

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 Marcos or for a San Marcos peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in San Marcos and peer relationship advice.
