Resisting Peer Pressure

Growing older can be tough, especially when you are out on your own with friends having to make some tricky choices for yourself about your own well-being. Peer pressure can be difficult to resist, be it one-on-one or within a group.

Ever heard of www.thecoolspot.gov? This website has all sorts of info about resisting peer pressure, specifically this page with tips and ideas for what to say/do when the going gets tough.

“If someone is pressuring you to do anything that’s not right or good for you, you have the right to resist. You have the right to say no, the right not to give a reason why, and the right to just walk away from a situation.” (www.thecoolspot.gov)
