Helping your child handle peer pressure

As kids grow older they are increasingly influenced by their friends, which can create conflict with parents.

  • A good relationship with your child is the best insurance against peer pressure
  • Talk directly about peer pressure – don’t avoid it, hoping it will just go away
  • Teach them useful phrases to use to cope
  • Don’t nag or threaten teenagers too much

Tips:

Mother’s Day – What is Dad’s role?

Help the kids to make this day extra special for Mum and the whole family.

Activities:

Create adventurous vacations

Don’t just do the same thing each vacation – go to new places each time and try different holidays – e.g. camping, hiking, exploring, mountain biking.
