Peer Pressure Articles: How To Avoid Giving In
Dear BeingGirl Experts, I'm 13 years old, and next year I will be starting high school. I know when I get there, there will be a lot of people I know and don't know. There will be boys that will try me. I'm smart enough to know when to say no, but sometimes you just want to say yeah, so please let me know what can I do? Jonesey --- Dear Jonesey, You are always in charge of yourself. Meeting and spending time with the kinds of people you really want to know is important. Don’t settle for friends you know are headed in the wrong direction. Don't get pressured into doing anything you don’t want to do in order to "fit in" with anyone or group. Get involved in activities you enjoy and you'll meet others who share your interests. You can meet some other students and work towards a common goal you enjoy. Chances are you'll make new friends too! Hope this is helpful, Your BeingGirl Experts
