Having the latest technology can be a particularly big pressure.
If your child has a strong sense of himself and his values, it’s more likely he’ll know where to draw the line when it comes to assessing risks.
If your child thinks you don’t approve of her friends, she might even want to see more of them.
So instead of focusing on any people you don’t like, you can try talking to your child about the behaviour you don’t like.
Peer influence might result in children: Coping well with peer influence is about getting the balance right between being yourself and fitting in with your group.
Some children are more likely to be negatively influenced by peers – for example, children who have poor self-esteem, who feel they have few friends, and who have special needs.
