When in a position to influence/guide teens, what do you tell them about "peer pressure?"

Amen, gf.....the younger we teach......the more their bright young minds can absorb. Self-confidence is a MUST!
All you say is so true, Grandma.....and yes, I am interested in what others do to handle this issue. Why? Because of what I witness quite often, from teens of today. 2 grandchildren through this issue successfully...more on the way!! Prepare!!
Excellent response! Yes, it is important to help kids really get to know themselves, be proud of their strengths and know to work on the weaknesses....Parents need to understand, I think, that it's vital to "be present," and open to conversation.
Excellent! I like the way you think! If you can steer teens.....you've done a wonderful thing for them!
annart....First things, first. No "problems". Your daughter has a "heads-up, & the opportunity to start NOW. Rx: open communication w/o anger or blame, more mother-child time and activities together, firm but loving feedback. Instill self-love.
Thank you so much; it's so good to know there's good advice in these wonderful hubpages! Enjoy your weekend! Ann
duffsmom.....What did you say? Both of your children "seemed to be disgusted by the bad behavior of their peers," LARGELY BECAUSE OF YOUR INFLUENCE!...so you can be SURE! Great Job!!!
