Nowadays, it seems undeniable to everyone that the existence of peer pressure has long been known since the very beginning of school. While many argue that the comparisons among friends can be quite encouraging in terms of studying and personality, there are many objections due to the likelihood of depression and worse consequences. Personally, I opine this should be kept balanced on the following grounds.
To begin with, one of the most obvious advantages associated with rivalry at schools relates to the desire to surpass each other in various fields. To make it clear, when young students are given poor marks in a particular test and find out other classmates with higher results, they will be likely to study harder and make an utmost effort in the next one. This means that there would be a continuing competitions among peers for better academic performances. Another benefit worth considering is the changes of dignity and personality. Specifically, due to the diversity of characters among the youthful, playing and proceeding with outstanding students can lead to their imitation of the way others are performing, which will result in a both-side improvement.
On the other hand, there are also some drawbacks when the immature keep competing with their friends. The first to be mentioned is the probability of downheartedness and further repercussions. Particularly, under the circumstance when young learners have tried their utmost but to no avail, those with weak wills tend to become pessimistic and somehow suffer from autism. Finally, when it comes to the dark sides of peer pressure, the imitation of illicit and antisocial activities would be inevitable. For instance, habits of smoking, robbing and violence are the most noticeable when hanging out with ill-educated adolescents.
In conclusion, peer influence can be undeniably a mixed blessing but young students would benefit most from this in terms of academic performances and personality, depending on whom they are playing with.
