Episode 15: The Working Mom: Peer Pressure and The Impact on your Teen The Working Mom: Life of A Bully Teacher

    • Kids & Family

Last week we went over parental pressure and the impact it might have on our kids. This week I want to go over peer pressure. My goal is to provide you with resources and tips to give your kids the confidence to stand up for themselves, say no, and not succumb to peer pressure.

Tips to help your kid overcome peer pressure:
* Build the confidence they need to feel safe around their friends
* Model the behavior at home
* Practice and role-play
* When watching TV try watching their shows and then talks about the different peer pressure situations
* Talk about a time that you gave in to peer pressure and how it had negative consequences
* Ask them about what types of peer pressure they see and how others react
* Get to know their friends and friends' parents
* Keep your teen active and engaged
