87% of kids face negative peer pressure daily! Some of the more common
negative peer pressures that your child might face include gossiping and
cliques, cheating, lying about planned activities, fighting, vandalism,
driving too fast, etc. as well as the more serious invitations to smoke,
drink, use other drugs, and be sexually active. Sharon’s award-winning,
guide for teens, How to Say No and Keep Your Friends, 2nd
Ed., is filled with proven techniques and over 125 sure-fire refusal
lines. A follow-up must reading for teens is When to Say Yes! And Make
More Friends which empowers youth to involve themselves in positive, fun
ways with youth of good character. These books are highly readable for
kids and are filled with true stories, cartoons, and valuable living
skills. Peer Pressure Reversal, 2nd Ed. is the companion adult guide
for the parent, educator, or professional helper to help you foster a
responsible, happy child. Give your kids the tools they need and
empower them to stand out, not just fit in!
