Peer Pressure: Bringing Families Back Together

Peer pressure can lead to good teens making bad choices. This is very common.
In 2017, we will have our work cut out for us opposing cyber bullying, maintaining that teens keep making good decisions and much more. Please show your support for a healthier, safer world by contributing today!

Many parents who contact B.W.T.E.™ state that their child has fallen into the wrong crowd and has become a follower rather than a leader. They are making bad choices, even though they know better. However, the fear of not fitting in with their friends sways them to make the wrong decisions. Low self esteem can attribute to this behavior, and if it has escalated to a point of dangerous situations such as legal issues, substance use, gang related activity, etc. it may be time to seek outside help. Remember, don’t be ashamed of this; it is very common today and you are not alone. So many parents believe others will think it is a reflection of their parenting skills; however, with today’s soc…

ANYTIME! Join our circle

Join Beauty Within Teen Esteem staff and volunteers, friends, allies and partners as we come together in the face of uncertainty. As community, we are experiencing fear, concern and anger regarding our current political climate.
At Beauty Within Teen Esteem, we always acknowledge the need to build and uphold community, but especially in times like this. We invite you to join us for a Chat, to make our voices heard, to show up for each other, and connect. Chat is a modern practice derived from many ancient forms of people coming together and communicating. This is a practice of deep listening without judgment, fostering an atmosphere of respect for one's self and for others and promotes empathy, dissolving barriers to cooperation, understanding, community.

Because kids can be reluctant to talk about bullying

How to Stand Up to Your Enemies at School: 4 Steps

Standing up for what you believe in is one of the most important skills you'll need in life. People in life will always try to knock you down, but as long as you get back up, you're showing them that you can stand for what you believe in. If you're being bullied, it's probably just because the bully is jealous of you. You should always remember that you're powerful and can conquer anything. Be strong!

To keep bullies at bay and to prevent future bullying, kids need to know how to stand up to a bully. Aside from developing their assertiveness skills, building their self-esteem and improving their social skills, they also need practical tools on how to handle bullying situations.
