If you are a parent, teacher or coach, you may sometimes notice a change in the behavior of a student in your care. There are many factors that could be involved in this change. It may be because of an illness, death or divorce in the student’s family. It could be due to the emotional and physical changes occurring during puberty. However, often, it is due to the strong influence of the peers in the student’s life. Peer pressure can influence a student to make uncomfortable choices: drug use, smoking, sexual activity and more. Arm yourself with the latest information to recognize and deal with the effects of peer pressure. Our knowledgeable writers at Bright Hub have many selections to help you.
