Adolescent Care

A sociologist – Robert Havighurst – say that we have nine development tasks. These nine tasks are:
1. Selecting a mate
2. Achieving a masculine or feminine social role
3. Learning to live with a marriage partner
4. Starting a family
5. Rearing children
6. Managing a home
7. Getting started in an occupation
8. Taking on civic responsibility
9. Finding a congenial social group. Selecting a mate

As we age, we tend to participate in peer groups to please everybody essentially wanting to gain popularity or to be socially accepted

Thus leads us to peer pressure. Peer pressure is pressure to do what others around you are doing and are usually bad omens, Usually we are afraid of disrespecting or offending a person, thats why people have a diffucult time saying “no” to people you who pressure you to do things you arent willing to do

Some of the conclusion of peer pressure is alcholism, smoking, or drug abuse

We should refuse harmful or illegal substances amd should learn to say no to keep you healthy

Because of our want to be accepted socially. We tend to listen to others opinions and change ourselves just to please everybody. Because of this people gain disorders or depression (usually eating disorders). Some examples are bulimia and anorexia nervosa
