Handling peer pressure

Your teenager’s friends need not be a threat to your relationship with your son or daughter – and may be an opportunity to have a positive father figure influence.

  • Avoid always talking about how bad their friends are – invite their peers to your house and encourage positive friendships
  • Listen to them without lecturing
  • Ask teenagers about their music interests, friends, issues and struggles
