Jan 8: Positive Peer Pressure?

Can peer pressure be positive? Why or why not?

I generally view peer pressure as something negative, primarily because I’ve only ever had negative experiences when it comes to peer pressure.

But, like most things, it depends on the circumstances.

Peer pressure could be good for those who are quite shy or socially awkward – it might get them to try things they haven’t experienced before, or things that they might think they’re afraid of… or it might just be good for the average person to get up and do something.

‘we’re all going out for lunch…’

‘we’re all heading down to the beach…’

‘you’re all coming over for drinks and nibbles…’
