Here I AM: Pressures of Being Yourself in the Midst of Your Peers

Today, both boys and girls are facing peer pressure. This is nothing new under the sun. It just seems that the age that they face pressure is much earlier. The following video is from The Camp Rock movie, when Peggy sings at the Camp Rock Talent Show. All summer, she was under the shadow of all of peers, and HERE SHE IS; letting everyone know that she is her own individual with her own gifts, talents and dreams.

As you watch this video, think back how it was for you as a child, a teen and now, an adult. Help your children to overcome peer pressure by letting them know; first, that you can relate to this type of pressure, that you are concerned, and them help give them the tools they need to overcome this pressure. Find resources to help deal with bullying, which is more serious than peer pressure. Let them know they are unique, special and have a purpose. Let them know that they don't have to give into any pressure that their peers present, which includes giving up their own individual identity.
