Synopsis

Handling Peer Pressure by Kate Stevenson Clark

Peer pressure in the real world is not just about dares and bullies. In fact, it sometimes can be hard to spot. Peer pressure can cause people to avoid making friends outside their own clique, follow trends without thinking, try to achieve an impossible look, not take school seriously, and let anger turn into violence. Handling Peer Pressure examines the many different kinds of peer pressure, where it comes from, and how to beat it - and tells the stories of some remarkable people who did. History and current events topics covered include: eating disorders; Gandhi and the struggle to make India accept various classes of people; how TV shows and the media perpetuate stereotypes; Nellie Bly and the pressure to fit into male and female stereotypes; and teens battling pressure to drink and smoke.
