Anxiety, hopelessness, irritability, distrust, trouble sleeping, lack of motivation, and low self-esteem are all signals that your body is trying to process and cope with something. Your past experiences and present environment shape the way new dynamics, trauma, interpersonal relationships, and loss affect you and this is different for each person. You may notice changes in your thoughts, behaviors, and feelings; perhaps new physical symptoms. Disruptions in connection, contentment, confidence, and peace happen in life. Together, we will identify your body’s signals, and the areas of your life you would like to be different.

Peer Relationships in Dallas

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 Dallas

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 Dallas

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.
