peer pressure by Mind Map: peer pressure

1. Instead of being a trailblazer, some people feel pressure to be rebellious. This may be because their friends act that way. It may just be because they think that they must be “different” in order to be special. This kind of person may seem very independent on the outside

1.1. this person is still letting peers infl uence his or her identity. In this case, peer pressure is causing this student to run away from the crowd. The peer pressure to not follow the crowd, or not care about fads, can also happen within a clique. In some cliques, there is direct or internal peer pressure to “not do what the popular kids do.”

1.2. Some people who do this are simply being honest. Others, however, are trying to go against the crowd “just because.” They have no reason. When people follow this mind- set, they are still choosing likes and dislikes that are based on what is popular.

1.2.1. Being your own person means examining and judging something—a fad, some music, clothing, or an activity—and then deciding what’s best for yourself. As you go through this process, remember to stay respectful of other people’s choices. If you respect them, they are more likely to respect you.

3.1. When two people get into an argument over a small event, “I’m sorry” may be the only words that these people need to say. However, it may not be so simple if they have not been getting along for a while or if there is a confusing event that happens to make them both angry at each other. For example, if these two people gossip and spread rumors about each other all through the school year, a simple apology may not be enough to fi x the hurt. In some cases, you may decide

3.1.1. the best thing to do is walk away— at fi rst.Take deep breaths and count to 10. Do something to calm down, or fi nd someone to help you. That way, you clear your mind and give yourself time to think.

3.1.3. Is someone pushing you to do something? > Does this happen a lot? > Are you feeling this upset in this situation because you are really angry about something totally different? > Do you feel like you have to ignore the problem or else you will lose friends

3.3.1. The best response to peer pressure is not to conform to what everyone else is doing,

3.3.2. “If you’re too afraid of failure, you’ll never allow yourself to succeed

3.3.3. The second step to standing up against negative peer pressure is to know yourself and know what makes for strong character. Whatever the kind of peer pressure, it is important to take a stand based on your values. The Nemours Foundation’s Web site suggests that, when faced with peer pressure, “paying attention to

3.4. I will stick up for people who are being bullied because I would not want to be bullied myself. > I will be friendly to people I do not know very well because, later on, they could turn out to be good friends. > I will do my own schoolwork and will not be embarrassed to ask for help from a teacher or tutor if I need it. I will do this because I want to do well in school.

3.4.1. I will not make fun of someone else for being different, because everyone is different in some way. > I will not let other people copy my homework just so they can get a better grade. It was their fault for not doing the work themselves, and I should not let them get away with that. > I will not allow others to make me feel like a little kid just because I do not feel comfortable doing something that I believe is wrong or dangerous. I will not let them do this because I know that people who act like that are just trying to feel important.

How do the actions of other people agree or disagree with what you believe is right? > Take action. You could use one of the plans you came up with earlier. You may decide to say something or to ignore the pressure and walk away, depending on what is happening at that moment.
