As you review this week’s Learning Resources, consider the following questions: When you think of peer pressure, is it primarily a force encouraging negative and antisocial behaviors? Alternatively, can peer pressure lead adolescents to positive/prosocial behaviors?
Consider ways that gender, age, and cultural background may impact the nature of peer pressure.
By Day 4
