Top tips for handling peer pressure…

It’s OK to say no...

Especially if someone asks you to do something you don’t want to do.

Remember you don’t always have to follow the crowd!!

Standing out makes you you!

Find mates who share your values and opinions.

They’ll have your back.

Look for positive role models…

Who aren’t afraid to say what they like and don’t like!

And it’s OK to be your own best mate.

Because you are unique and special, so forget any negativity and stay POSITIVE to peer pressure.

  • When I was growing up, I went through a lot of peer pressure but now I'm happy to be different to the crowd.
    A fake friend used to make me do things I don't want to but she left school before she had time to put me through more peer pressure.

    You sound like you need to talk to someone about what you’re going through at the moment. You could speak to a family member, a friend or a teacher.
    If there is no one you feel you can speak to, it may help to phone Childline on 0800 1111. It’s free from any phone and you can even call from a mobile with no credit. Or, you could call the Samaritans helpline on 08457 90 90 90 (not free) or email jo@samaritans.org.uk
    There are more helpline numbers here: www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/articles/advice-helplines
    Try to talk to someone as soon as possible. It might surprise you how much better it feels when you share a problem. We hope this advice helps.
