Deal with it without losing your cool

From the Series Lorimer Deal with It

  • Interest Level: Grade 4 - Grade 9   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 6

Some psychologists argue that peers have a greater influence on one another than do their parents, siblings, and teachers. Sometimes this influence is positive, but all too often pressure from friends and bullies can have negative effects, from hurt feelings to seriously risky behavior.

Using contemporary situations and language, Peer Pressure explores the pressures young people experience, how to walk away from it, and how kids can empower each other to stand up for their own interests.
