Negative peer pressure can cause tremendous stress on kids who just want to fit in and be accepted by the other kids at school. Fear of being rejected, teased, laughed at, or of losing friendships can cause anxiety and even depression. What can we do?
We can start by helping kids learn how to make good decisions and stand against peer pressure. Developing InnerPower teaches three skills for standing against peer pressure:
• First, kids must understand their values –who they are and what they stand for. In the first four skill books they will learn the critical values of self-responsibility, integrity, respect, and self-respect and how these values will help them be leaders of their own lives.
• Second, kids decide what they want for themselves. They learn the “four C’s of making a decision” and then make decisions in key areas of their lives such as cheating, stealing, experimenting with drugs or alcohol, etc.
• Third, kids learn how to recognize negative peer pressure and how to say “no” to their peers when they feel pressure to do something they don’t want to do.
