Peer Influence D


Peer Influence D - The Neuron
  • Peers may occur because of selection effect.
  • Selection effect is when kids seek other kids with similar attitudes and interests.
  • An example of this will be, kids who smoke usually hangs out with other kids who smoke.
  • Parental nurture and influence is necessary in early stages of childhood. But as we continue our lives, we have to deal with peers and youth are most vulnerable to it.
  • Parents can shape and make peer groups.
  • Parents'-group-to-children's-group effect is when culture is transmitted across generations.
  • Family and parents shape the children and, to some limit, determine their future.
  • Parental nurture is like nutrition. It doesn't matter what kind of parents a child has, they just need one.
  • Education, discipline, responsibility, orderliness, charitableness, and ways of interacting with authority figures are all up to the parents to teach.
  • Peers help children learn cooperation, how to find the road to popularity, and different styles of interaction among people of the same age.
  • Young children can find peers more interesting than their parents but will turn to their parents when contemplating their own futures.
  • Parents try to choose the right environment with the right peers for their children.
  • Children not only learn from parents but also learn from outside sources which can be a risk to their future.
CONCLUSION: Peers can develop from parents and the environment. Peers can influence other children who eventually can become a peer. Parents cannot teach some of the things peers teach. Peer can be good and peer can be bad.
