  • It depends on you

    It depends on youu

    It is up to you if it becomes a bad thing. If they are doing something you know is wrong but you do it anyway to be "cool" and what not, that is your fault. It honestly depends on the people you surround yourself with. If you are near the people with manners and who pay attention in class and obey rules, then it will rub off on you. Peer pressure is influence from a member's peers. So it is up to who you hang around. It is only a bad thing if you make it one

  • Intro . .

    People have a natural tendency to form groups and a natural desire to “fit in” with these groups. Some people use the term peer pressure to refer to the ways that peer groups influence the behavior of their members. However, the term is somewhat misleading. Many of the ways that peers influence each other do not take the form of direct pressure or encouragement. People may go along with the group’s behavior without even realizing that they are doing it. Therefore, some sociologists suggest that peer influence is a better term for this social force than peer pressure .

    Peer pressure and other types of peer influence can be particularly strong for teenagers. In some cases, it can be destructive, encouraging teens to engage in harmful behaviors, such as drug use or crime. However, teens can also have a positive influence on each other’s behavior. Furthermore, it is not always clear that groups of adolescents engage in similar behaviors because they pressure their members to blend in. Teenagers may simply be more likely to choose friends whose interests and values are similar to their own.

  • In my opinion

    I totally agree that peer pressure is not at all harmful. It's all about the way you take things
    It helps you learn new things. And as for the talk that your friends force you into something you don't wish to do, they are not your friends and don't deserve to be called so.

  • Yes it is

    Children commit suicide due to the fact that they are not the way society expects them to be. Ilegal substances and underage drinking takes place which is dangerous for a developing brain. Peer pressure makes an individual do something they would have never expected themselves to do, it makes them distant and not able to communicate with those who could possibly help them. Peer pressure is harmful in most ways!

  • Blindly we can say that its a worst thing

    , A Weekly Reader Publication , is quoted as saying, The "desire to be accepted by their peers is perhaps the strongest motivating force during adolescence." Many studies reinforce his theory. One study showed, for example, that a student who knew the correct answer to a question gave the wrong answer just because everyone else in the class gave the wrong answer.

  • You are with the wrong people.

    Peer pressure is marked as a bad thing every turn you take because we as humans have no interest in good things happening. No matter who you are, bad things interest you more than good things. Peer pressure is often marked as being forced to do something you do not agree with; something that goes against your sense of ethics. Common examples are "being forced into" having sexual relations with a person, doing "drugs" or drinking underage. Less common, but still pretty common are fashion trends or political views. How you classify a stereotype. Your feelings about a person. The majority of what has been said are examples of negative peer pressure, and yes there is more but drugs, drinking, etc, is rare.. You only hear about it the most because it is more interesting than what else I listed. The reason negative peer pressure happens is because humans are social beings and we want to belong. We do what we believe others want us to do, or what they ask us to do for acceptance. But no one is forcing you, it only feels so because it makes you uncomfortable or you read about someone "being forced" to do so. You want to be cool or popular or whatever it is called so you do dumb things for acceptance. Yes this all goes back to it seeming bad but i am getting to why most of you are wrong. Peer pressure is influence from a members peers. So the influence the people you are always around, give you. If you are around the wrong type of people, that will cause a negative influence. So it all depends on who you are around. IF you even read this far.... Are you ready for examples of positive peer pressure? -friends helping you with school work so you understand it better so you can pass. -parents teaching you to be kind to others -paying attention to whatever -etc. Every good thing your friends or family got you doing is examples of positive peer pressure. It is only bad if you allow it to be. An example of positive peer pressure i experienced is something i caused. A girl at my school cut, and smoked. I began to talk to her and try to see what was wrong. I found out but that is classified intel... Therefore i began to get her to go out with my friends and i to the movies and etc so she could take her mind off it for a while and get better. She does not cut, smoke, or anything else and when she feels like she is going to relapse we go do another fun activity. Sounds positive. But stories like so is not something humans care about. So that is why everyone thinks peer pressure is only a bad thing. If you believe my side of the debate is invalid, well i honestly dont care. Im 14. But im also correct.

  • Peer pressure is beneficial not harmful.

    Peer pressure is beneficial not harmful. People only think about the negative because of media and in everyday life a big percentage of people find the negative thing more interesting. Nobody's interested when good things happen, its when the bad things happen and the media gets straight to work, trying to get the situation as negative as possible. Yes, there are bad things about peer pressure such as your peers getting you to take drugs or to drink alcohol under aged. But that's about it. There are so many positives, to many I can't list them all. Peer pressure can get you trying new things, enjoying something you wouldn't of thought that you'd of enjoyed, help you learn from your mistakes and grow as a person. There are so many more. Just because you've read a magazine and it says something, or your friend is telling you something, check again. Search the web, ask others about what they've heard, because it's most likely your friend has got it from a source that has rarely any good things. A magazine on celebs for example. Media always shows the negative not te positive. It's time to prove to people that things aren't true and they shouldn't judge people or something from what they've read, because the chances are that these things weren't as worse as they seem to be. Peer pressure is beneficial NOT harmful!

  • Peer pressure is harmful

    Peer pressure is the influence that forces one to do what they do not like and acquire bad habits. Peer pressure compels us to adopt certain habits that can ruin our life . It is possible that you do not smoke or do not like partying every weekend . But peer pressure is very powerful . It can turn you from a non- smoker to a chain smoker . Many people drink against their will just because of peer pressure. Peer pressure can also make you a drug addict . Thus, i say peer pressure can just destroy and ruin your life. Its harmful.

  • No peer pressure is not harmful its beneficial.

    We always blame the bad things first but why could we think about the positive thing. Peer pressure can never said to be bad.It helps to change our pesonality.Many people told that friends force us to do wrong things such as having drugs or alcohol.The first point against this can be said that those persons who force us to do wrong things knowing that we are not comfortable then they did not deserve to be call as friends.

  • Im on both sides

    Peer pressure makes u do better on grades. But in life, peer pressure makes us depressed and people then usually takes drugs and they eventually become unhealthy. But, since peer pressure is a everyday thing that happens, we shall learn to deal with it, and take advantage with it. Okay, im done .

  • Historical. Expression That peer pressure. Is much likely to take away the liflife.

    Even one of the biggest Biggest history. The Great Mahabharata. Teaches us. That peer pressure. Can even. Risk. Family as well. As life......
    "Karn"one of the hero of Mahabharata. Looses his life , only due to his great friendship. With "Duryodhan" -a person. With I'll intension.
    Even Karn fought against his real family (pandavs) due to his friendshifriendship, Who owed him to stay away and act against his own blood.
    Karn always wanted to be with. Krishna As he knew who stands on right way but he could
    not have it due to his commitment to his friend.
    This also proves thathat even our willpower bows down in front of peer pressure
