Overview

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-in addition to telling the stories of some remarkable people who did.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
A part of the series "Character Education" from Chelsea House, Handling Peer Pressure examines the positive and negative aspects of peer pressure for middle school students. Topics range from the problems with cliques to the dangers of social groups on the Internet. One chapter is devoted to illegal use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. In the final chapter "Overcoming peer pressure," students are given ideas and strategies for dealing with the inappropriate pressure they may feel from their friends or classmates. Written at about a seventh grade level, this book is accessible to middle school students and has a variety of information that could be useful for reports but probably would not be a text that a young person would pick up without a direct purpose in mind. The illustrations are primarily realistic photographs. While there is some variety in both racial and gender depictions, the majority of pictures show white females. Reviewer: Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
