As we all know from working with kids, as nannies, peer pressure can be a huge issue in the children we care for. How do you deal with kids and peer pressure? Recently I read an article from Carolina Parent about Helping Children with Peer Pressure. This is a basic and simple guide to helping children who are doing the pressuring and those who are being pressured.
Peer pressure can take many forms over the course of childhood, occurring in groups from early childhood through young adulthood. Helping children navigate their way through relationships and social interactions often takes more than simply telling them to accept themselves and others for who they are.
