How much influence do you think your friends have on you? Peer pressure is a powerful thing, especially for teenagers? But, even as a person gets older, peer pressure can have a lot of influence on what a person decides to do or not do. Everyone wants to be accepted by their peers. It’s a natural thing to want. However, a person needs to be careful about what they are willing to do to gain acceptance into a group. There are “gangs” that require a person to do certain things that might be illegal or dangerous, before that person would be accepted into the gang. Other groups might require doing something less dangerous or not illegal but nevertheless objectionable. Choosing decent companions is always the best thing to do. Making big mistakes during your youth can ruin the rest of your life, so it’s very important to choose your friends wisely. Here’s a link you might enjoy watching.
Bible-based movies and videos for families, teenagers, and children. Documentaries about Jehovah’s Witnesses. Watch or download.

Trying to fit in does seem to be a quest for so many. So hard for parents to convince a child that being an individual and not following the crowd is the way to go.
