Benefits of peer influence
In recent times teenagers are mostly led to do things they are influenced to by their peers. And this influence starts from their teenage age through to early adulthood.
Peer pressure can certainly be beneficial. It can motivate someone to do something that they may not otherwise have had the strength or willpower to do. It can also help them to make decisions based on the input of those in similar circumstances..peer pressure also allows us to better understand our options.
Classroom peers are believed to influence learning by teaching each other, and the efficacy of this reaching likely depends on classroom composition in terms of peers ability....while peer to peer teaching improves learning among low-ability subjects, the positive effects are substantially offset tracking.
Peers , particularly group members, become important social referents. Peer group also influence individual members' attitude and behaviours on many cultural and social issues, such as:drug use , violence,and academic achievement
It can also help them to make decisions based on the input of those in similar circumstances....peer pressure also allows us to better understand our options.
In summary,it appear that immaturity amongst mid-adolescents leads to impulsivity and aggressive behavior. Couple theses factors with making poor friend choices and a recipe for negative peer pressure influence, including exposure to and engaging in criminal behavior,is created.
