Young people are often influenced by their peers. This is called peer group pressure. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

Nowadays, teenagers can be a part of different types of groups. Some of them become influenced by their

peers

. The opponents of these groups point out the negative aspects,

however

, I am inclined to believe that there is no

one

in the whole world who does not take advice and suggestions from others. In the forthcoming paragraphs, I will demonstrate how communication with

peers

can lead to some benefits, but

also

will show the drawbacks of these connections.

All humans around the world have a proclivity to imitate others.

One

of the main advantages of

this

fact is the opportunity to learn something new from

peers

.

For instance

, the marks of

one

student are the worst in his class, but after communicating with an excellent classmate they can be improved by the hardworking process. It means, that a

first

rank holder may influence dull students at school.

Moreover

, different interests of

peers

may create an open-minded community. As an example, having

peers

who are into something

that is

not interested in

one

, can lead to growing interest over time. All these examples above manifest the fact that

peers

are needed in

one

_s life and due to the friendship with them can share thoughts, get advice and take moral support.

As every rose has o thorn,

peer

pressure

has some drawbacks. A weak-minded person connects to the wrong

peer

group and ends up getting addicted to alcohol or even drugs. Communication with bad companies contributes to some health repercussions and

one

is likely to get cancer, stroke or heart disease. Another example of

this

notion is a bright student with astonishing knowledge may perform poorly due to negative

peer

pressure

. So, care by family or friends must be taken to prevent fall prey to the wrong

peer

pressure

.

In conclusion, I am inclined to believe that the merits of

peers

overweigh the demerits, and in most cases lead to the benefits. But parents must keep an eye on children to protect them from negative

pressure

from

peers

.
