It's true, media does make peer pressure sound worse than it actually is, but everyone knows that peers does not necessarily mean your friends. When someone changes you, like if they want you to be like them, you become a second copy of them, and who wants that? Just because others may find fault in you, it doesn't mean you don't have a good side. No one's perfect, you can see that no one always gets every question right on the tests. When they change you, they may like you, but your old friends wouldn't like it, they liked you for who you were, not if you had to be popular, or drink alcohol. Even if the change is tiny, you'll bring many grief later. Getting good grades isn't really something your peers worry about, so it doesn't count as "peer" pressure.
Because its changing who YOU are. Its best to be yourself, to do what YOU believe is right. When you are peer pressured, its meaning other people are influencing you to do something they encourage. In a negative situation, its not right. From being the beautiful girl on cheer team, she could become that girl that smokes, that girl that did that drugs at the party.Peer Pressuring could destroy someones whole life...Dont worry about other people, just be you and do what you believe is right...BE YOU.
People, are unique they are born to be unique they should not change that to be cooler or to join a group. How can it be beneficial to propel as peer pressure causes stress suicide drugs and alchohal. The truth is within society people are changing because of peer presure how is his right god made us unique for a reason so we should stay unique for a reason
Because it tricks kids to doing bad things just so they can be " cooler " when you don't benefit from it at all. At school kids are being persuaded in to doing it and saying oh yeah you can only be cool and hang out with us if you do this.
You can be inspired to do bad things by the pressures your peer is giving you. It can also stop the flow of creativity going through your mind. It pushes you to outrageous things such as drinking and smoking. You will not be yourself due to peer pressure. The word pressure itself causes stress
Yes there is positive peer pressure but it is very rare compared to negative peer pressure. Negative peer pressure cause one to do most of the times very outrageous things that can harm them mentally, physically and even spiritually. This is why I agree to the statement that peer pressure is harmful
Peer pressure just ruins a person as an individual, making them believe they have to be like everybody else. Having them think that being unique and different isnt 'cool.' this could cause the victim to change into something their not in order to be liked which can ruin friendships, break promises, hurt their self confidence and put them out of their comfort zone. We should embrace out differences instead of pressuring others to be more like us. Itll just hurt you, so stay unique and dont let anyone tell you what's cool or not, their just insecure about who they are.
Peer pressure is definitely beneficial, because (for example) if your marks in a test come low and the rest of the pupils in your class got good marks then, next time it will help you gain impeccably good marks.
There are two types of peer pressure, negative AND positive.
And the most common one is positive. If you look at it from a certain perspective then it CAN ALSO be positive!
It tells you to do stuff which can harm you ! If a peer pressures you tell someone because you don't know if it may grow and become more harmful than before! Never fall into peer pressure make your own decisions ! No one can tell you what to do!
By definition peer pressure pushes people towards decisions that they don't want to make, which is usually for good reason. Peer pressure can put people, particularly teenagers, in dangerous spots that can depending on the activity result in a myriad of outcomes, most of which aren't particularly good ones. It's not a safe practice.
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!

We always blame the bad things first but why could we think about the positive thing.
