When people close to your age try to influence you, it’s called peer pressure. A peer can be a friend, classmate, family member or anyone you hang out with. Peers can pressure you to make the same decisions they do. Sometimes peers will pressure you to do something dangerous, foolish, against the law or that you don’t feel ready for, like having sex.
Peer pressure is a normal part of growing up. Everyone feels peer pressure, even adults. It can be hard to know what’s the right decision to make when you feel peer pressure. It’s your life and your choices. Make sure that the decisions you make are based on what you want—not what your peers want.
