Do you believe peer pressure does more good (yes) or harm (no)?

  • It’s does more Good that Harm

    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 is interested when good things happen, it’s when the bad things happen that the media gets straight to work to make out that peer pressure
    is bad.

  • Peer pressure does more good than harm

    I belive tha pressure does more good than harm because it not only pressurizes but it also motivates one to do the work well!!
    For eg. A child who is not doing well in his or her examinations and is failing in each and every exams. That person may get pressurized by his parents or by his teachers and friends to do well also! That person may do well and pass in his next exam NOT TOP HIS CLASS but atleast he or she improves.
    Pressure also help the child or any person to get encouraged.
    Thank you!

  • It depends on the person

    Whether peer pressure is good or bad depends on the person.
    I feel like peer pressure at its extremes can do more good then bad. For as long as humanity has been around, peer pressure as shone its bad side more than its good side, but good can to so much more than bad can.

  • It also depend upon the parents

    Teenagers are the most likely to fall prey to peer pressure. So, their parents and teachers should save them from succumbing to it. It's natural for a teenaged kid to feel like imitating his friends. It's natural for him to feel like smoking just because his friends do or feel like drinking because his peers do. It's not abnormal for teenaged kids to adopt all that is considered hip and cool without a second thought. They don't do it deliberately. No. They just can't distinguish between the good and the bad. They need to be taught the difference. They need to be shielded from negative peer pressure. And the solution is not in isolating them from peers. It's in teaching them to make good choices in life.

  • Peer Pressure; encourages people to take the chance

    Peer pressure can harm you in many ways, it could make you choose bad life choices. It can also pressure you to grab opportunities that has heavy effects in your future . Peer pressure, in every ways has influences in your life choices.
    I believe that peer pressure is more useful than harmful, as it encourages teens of our generation to take every chances that would guarantee their future standings.
    We youths don't have alot of will, and constantly needs a push to the right direction. Peer pressure ensures that we make choices that we won't regret. It benefits us in many ways we don't expect.
    Our parents pressures us to study hard in order to make a better life in the future. This is true, their help ensured so many successful people on their career path.
    Not all celebrities reached their current position by themselves, they had to be influenced by something or someone. Mostly pressured by either their guardians or friends, which we call friend pressure.
    The celebrity idols of yours might have been encouraged to take the audition by their friend, or took classes because of their parents will. Those activities might be a start to a chain reaction of their successes in life.
    Chris Evans, for example had gone and attended acting school. Now that might have been by his own will, or maybe pressured by something of unknown. But don't take my word of him, I'm just using him as an example. He did went to acting school, he said it himself on his interviews.
    Maybe seeing other actors on TV might have preasured him to take the chance on learning. Chris Hemsworth's family is in to acting, and maybe pressured to take auditions.
    So these celebrities had done wonders by peer pressure. Peer pressure encourages us individuals, in grabbing the chance that may never come again.

  • Peer pressure is mostly good.

    Peers may be pressured into something from peer pressure, but it is still their choice to make. In the end they decide what they want to do. It teaches them how to make the right decisions in life. Peer pressure gets them ready for life in my opinion, it is good.

  • Yes here's why

    Peer pressure can up the child's working range and make them do better than rather have them be down all the time peer pressure makes the child do more than they thought they could so they can do better in life later on but that is my opinion do not take it to heart

  • The kids you see and call peers are not going to move or be influenced by judgment.

    So know that it is with great satisfaction that any child taught to act one way at home and another in school or in park, Will be a target for Envy, or anything his peer needs to feel equal or anything other than different. That is were kids are the same. When a child is taught to hustle and manipulate, con and desire. A home or a mom,Dad a meal. You will be only as manipulated as you come. You are responsible to help your neighbor, At minimum your child's peer, His mentor on the life outside. You will not know what hits you until it is a columbine or a over dose. If you are real lucky. A life time connection to your future family do to peer pressure sex and teen pregnancy. I recommend you not give up but give in. Do what ever you can to help peers help themselves. Self acceptance and awareness. If you let go or avoid you child and peers. Know that separation anxiety and psychopathic life will only grow and feed of anything and everything. It never goes away. That so I am on the fence for this one. Peer should not be taken lightly. So we have to teach are kids to be kind and aware of keeping friendship natters. Be able to notice hostile behavior and show it kindness or aggressive control, as per personal abilities to respect boundaries. If you are not able to protect child or peer from basic skills as to respect and follow directions. How will he learn. This to goes for child that allow peers to harm what you have protected and aggressively installed, and as a adult need to teach as many people in every peer group.

  • It's your decision.

    Peer pressure does more harm than good. The right group of friends can encourage a person to do positive things. If we keep the company of good people, they will look down upon us whenever we do bad things. So, we will shed that bad habit and we will try to become more like our peers.

  • Not that good

    I think that ususally when there is some type of peer pressure it is not in a good way. I think that most of the time kids are trying to make another person do something that is bad or illegal that the other one is not wanting to try much.

  • No, here's why.

    Peer pressure can lead to bad things, such as drugs and alcohol. Its not always the case, but it's the most common. If someone is trying to convince you to do something, it's normally bad. If somebody is trying to make you drink or smoke, please don't do it. It messes you up.

  • No no no

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

  • It does more harm.

    The reason peer pressure does more harm than good is because you feel it most during the developmental stage of your life, when foolish ideas are the norm and always being thrown around. For example, you start smoking cigarettes because your friends do. So no, more harm than good overall.

  • Peer Pressure Leads to Smoking, Drinking, Drugs

    Peer pressure does much more harm than good. It stifles freedom of expression and the freedom of ideas. Peer pressure leads to bad habits like bullying, drugs, smoking and drinking. Peer pressure can also lead to sex and hookups in the teenage years. Peer pressure can be good with things like volunteering and attending church, but too many bad things are associated with peer pressure.
