Peer pressure and influences

Peer pressure or influence is when you do something you wouldn’t otherwise do, because you want to feel integrated and accepted by your ”friends”.

 Peer influence can be positive or negative.

Some teenagers might choose to try things they usually wouldn’t be interested in, like smoking or behaving in antisocial ways.

According to Dr B. J. Casey from the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, young children are quick and accurate in making judgments and decisions on their own and in situations where they have time to think. However, when they have to make decisions, mainly they are often influenced by external factors like peers.
