Article Discussion 31: Peer pressure

[Peer Pressure]

Like it or not, changes in all shapes and sizes hit us in the face in more ways than one. We go through life meeting people from different cultures and with their parenting problems. The temptation of all kinds lurk in every corner of the bad companies, simple distractions, gossip. But one of the things that young people today are struggling with is peer pressure.


The term peer pressure means living a life even beyond their means. and flaunting their own material possessions not of their own pocket, but out of the purse strings of their parents, who enslave themselves to give their children luxuries and comforts of life.


Although unconscious, middle school students bow to peer pressure when skip classes for the latest concerts or the projection of current movie in town. They give in to peer pressure when they refuse to do their homework in favor of the party until the early hours of the morning until they make naive parents worry to death. They give in to peer pressure when they ignore every effort to correct their ways and surprise old folks how smoking and swearing at them have negatively change their lives.
