"For example, lets take a look at Janet. Janet is a outstanding student and athlete, who is quite popular in school. Her friends are going to a party and she is contemplating going along. She has an important test, and then practice along with the strenuous schedule. She knows that if she goes to this party, her grade and competition will suffer. But, she wants this opportunity so badly to finally hang out with her friends, and her being extremely bored at home just might make a spontaneous decision.
She stops to think about it before making the decision and ponders the true consequences. She still doesn't feel confident in her answer, so she decides to give it more thought. After thinking about it, she decides not to go and tell her friends in a calm, responsible manner. She decides that if any persist or try to persuade her, she would proceed in a strong, assertive manner and take control of her choices. She would respectfully get what she deserved, which in this situation was not goingto the party.
-NARRATION- Peer pressure is also crucial to teens and their emotions. Lets watch and see how her friends react to her decision. -END NARRATION- Jane decides to not go to the party, making the right choice regardless of her friends. She learns from other peers that studying and getting rest would be more important in this situation, and emotionally support her and her choice. Instead, they end up hanging out and her peers help her and teach her good studying habits, so she can learn and grow as a person.
-CUT BACK TO NARRATION- You see, despite the influences of her feelings and fear of judgment and rejection, a positive outcome arose, along with a positive reaction from her peers. Afterwards, she felt thankful and positive that she made the right decision, and knew she handled the situation well with assertiveness and self-control.
