Peer pressure, it happens everywhere, all the time. To me, peer pressure is persuading someone to do something, and once they do it, the group accepts them. Whether the situation is good or bad. I have been in many situations where peer pressure was present in the situation. For example, when I was little, I used to go to the playground a lot during the summer. All of the neighborhood kids used to go there; I remember this one time in particular. I was swinging on the swing-set with a couple of my friends and this boy came up to us and asked if he could swing too. My one friend told him that the only way he could swing is if he steals popsicles from the freezer for each of us. At first, the boy said no, but my friend persuaded him to do it more and more, and he finally did. Another example is drugs, smoking, drinking etc. Many teenagers are pressured into doing drugs every day, a big reason why is because they want to be accepted, to be “cool”. Last year, I was invited to a party. Everyone was talking about it, mainly because there were going to be no parents and alcohol. Instead of going I said no, because I knew what would likely happen if I did go. Also, the consequences of what could happen if something went wrong. The day after the party, I heard that the parents found out about there being alcohol, all the kids’ parents were called and basically every kid that showed up got grounded. So make sure you know what the consequences are before you do something, especially if someone else wants you to do it.
