But parents shouldn’t underestimate their influence, say experts.
What’s the best way to influence your child not to give in to peer pressure? It’s not to give in to peer pressure yourself!
Your child is studying you more closely than ever. How you withstand peer pressure will be your child’s model.
Must you have the same fancy new car as your sister-in-law? Do you say yes when you should say no? Then don’t be surprised if your child demands the same stereo as another child. Or follows another when he shouldn’t.
