What is Peer Pressure?
So, what is peer pressure…Well, peer pressure refers to the influence that peers, such as friends or classmates, can have on an individual's thoughts, feelings, and behavior. There are both positive and negative effects of peer pressure. Here are some key facets:

  • Peer Pressure can be both positive and negative. Positive peer pressure can encourage individuals to make healthy choices or engage in positive behaviors, while negative peer pressure can lead individuals to make poor choices or engage in risky behaviors.
  • Peer pressure can occur in a variety of settings. Such as school, social groups, and online communities.
  • Peer pressure can be seen in different ways. Like teasing, exclusion, or pressure to conform to certain standards or beliefs.
  • Peer pressure can be particularly strong in young age: Peer pressure can be particularly strong during adolescence when individuals are trying to establish their identities and fit in with their peers. However, it can also affect individuals of all ages.

It's important for individuals to be aware of peer pressure and to learn how to resist negative peer pressure. This can involve developing a strong sense of self, being assertive, and seeking out positive influences and supportive relationships. It's also important for parents, teachers, and other adults to provide guidance and support to help individuals navigate peer pressure and make healthy choices.

 

Parental pressure also a reality
It is not just peer pressure, but parents and family members too exert pressure on students.

 

What is parental pressure?
So, what is parental pressure…Well, Parental pressure refers to the expectations and demands that parents place on their children to achieve certain goals or meet certain standards. There are both positive and negative effects of parental pressure. Here are some key facets:

  • While parents may have good intentions, excessive parental pressure can have negative effects on children's emotional well-being, self-esteem, and academic performance.
  • Parental pressure can manifest in various ways, such as setting high academic or athletic expectations, comparing children to siblings or peers, and placing unrealistic demands on their time and energy.
  • This pressure can create a stressful and competitive environment in which children may feel they must constantly perform or achieve to meet their parents' expectations.

Research has shown that parental pressure can lead to a variety of negative outcomes, such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and even academic and social underachievement. It's important for parents to recognize the potential negative effects of excessive pressure and to strive for a balanced approach that emphasizes support and encouragement, rather than pressure and criticism.

 

Healthy parenting involves setting high standards and expectations, but also providing support, guidance, and opportunities for children to explore and develop their own interests and passions. By creating a supportive and nurturing environment, parents can help their children thrive and achieve their full potential without the negative consequences of excessive pressure. 

 

So, MBA students and aspirants, you must learn how to manage the pressure from various sources. Infact you should turn pressure into a friend, not a foe. You now know the answers to these questions:
