  23. 23. Do you think peer pressure is good or bad?<br />Why?<br />
  24. 24. “Peer pressure is a enormous part of everyday life for teenagers. It has a negative effect on us, because in turn we cannot think for ourselves. Our friends influence our choices, our choices influence our reality. We should be independent, and think for ourselves; we should discover our interests and our abilities. By having our peers and friends pressuring us in different directions hinders the choices we make”<br />
  25. 25. “its good, people think peer pressure only leads to bad things but ur friends can influence you to be a good person, its actually not the &quot;peer pressure&quot; thats bad, it the friends you hang out with. If you chill with stoners (like myself) you may feel influenced to smoke (idont influence others to smoke but you get what i mean...). You can aswell have friend that like to party and drink, however they do very well in skwl! These friends may influence you to party and drink, but in the end, they also influence you to do well in skwl. So really, peer pressure isnt something we can get rid of so we may as well deal with it. In my life, there are more positive peer pressures than negative ones...”<br />
  26. 26. “Peer pressure is bad because it can cause a person to act in a way that they feel is immoral.”<br /> “yes and no, depending on if a friend is pressuring you to get better grades, or to pull the fire alarm”<br />“both, it can help you try new things but sometimes those things aren&apos;t good. it really depends on your friends.”<br /> “Good, if you have good friends, if they have better grades than you your going to want to try and be like them.<br />Bad, if you have bad friends who like to do drugs and stuff”<br />
