Living with Peer Pressure and Bullying by Thomas Paul Tarshis


Living with Peer Pressure and Bullying by Thomas Paul Tarshis

Peer pressure can take many forms including making hurtful comments, influencing others to buy material items, or pressuring them to behave in a certain way or engage in a certain activity. Bullying is different from peer pressure because there is a direct threat of physical or emotional harm for not doing something, which is repeated over time by the same person. With an emphasis on situations that are common among teens, Living with Peer Pressure and Bullying examines the nature of these two common behaviors, the effects they have, and how one can combat them. Chapters cover the coercive power of peer pressure, the risks and rewards of telling the truth, cyberbullying, and helping others cope with bullying. This helpful new guide provides a wealth of practical information in clear, straightforward language.
