Presents a guide to different forms of peer pressure and bullying, the effects that they have on teens, how teens can combat them, and how they can help others to cope with their effects.

Blackwell Publishing
Peer pressure takes many different forms, including hurtful comments, undue influence by others to buy material items, or pressure to behave in a certain way or engage in a particular activity. Bullying is different from peer pressure because it implies a driect threat, repeated over time by the same person, of physical or emotional harm for not doing something.

Living with Peer Presure and Bullying examines the nature of these two common behaviors, the effects they have, and how teens can combat them. Chapters also cover the coercive power of peer pressure, the risks and rewards of telling the truth, cyberbulling, and helping others cope with bullying.

The Teen's Guides series examines issues that affect teens; provides a comprehensive discussion of common health and social problems, remedies, and coping skills; and lists practical resources for further information.
