Involvement with groups is part of everyone's development. Groups are your friends, your family, your equals and organizations to which you belong. Everyone belongs to groups. Everyone has peers. Peers are those individuals who are of the same societal group based on age, grade, or status. Being a member of a peer group is important to most people, and especially to adolescents. As members of a peer group adolescents usually dress alike, enjoy the same music, share secrets and use each other as a sounding board to test ideas and develop a standard by which each person judges himself/herself. No matter how old you are, you care what others think about you because you want to fit in and be accepted. The desire to be accepted into a group is a strong motivating force that can influence how you think and behave. We all have heard of peer pressure, but what is it? It is the influence that a group has on its members. Peer pressure usually has a negative connotation. We usually think of bad people trying to influence good people into doing things they shouldn't. However, peer pressure can be a positive influence. Dealing with positive peer pressure is easier than dealing with negative peer pressure.
