Teachers, parents need to know about teen peer pressure
from U.S. News & World Report
When teens need to get out of uncomfortable situations, the X-Plan might come in handy. The plan is simple: Teens text the letter "X" to a parent or an older sibling when they need help. The recipient then calls the teen and says to leave immediately and that the recipient will pick up the teen. The parent or older sibling doesn't ask any questions and the teen has an excuse to leave the party or other risky situation while avoiding social ridicule. The X-Plan to address peer pressure went viral last month and is the brainchild of a West Virginia dad, but dealing with this kind of stress is nothing new for teens.
