Peer Pressure


Peer pressure is something that I am seeing everyday with my girls... Pressure to wear the "right" clothes... the "right" hair... Pressure to listen to the "right" music.... watch the "right" shows... Last year my oldest had over 400 "right" songs on her IPod - and she personally did not like any of them... but she listened to them because they were the "right" songs to listen too... Now that she knows what she likes - she has deleted all but about 5 songs and is redoing her IPod inventory...

Fitting in as a teen and often times as an adult is hard to do... Fitting in as a teen is a priority for many... same goes for adults.. But my prayer is for my kids to find their own fit... Not go with the majority of their teeny boppers friends if they don't agree.... but go with what they like... what they want... Start a new trend... Be a leader... Stand up for themselves.. Watching my girls go through this - brings back so many memories of my "awkward" teen years...

1 Timothy 4:12 Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity....
