Explorer/Making Friends



Requirement 1

Participate in a panel discussion or skit on peer pressure and its role in your decision making.



Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book/Outreach/Temperance/Role-play

While these examples come from the Temperance Honor, peer pressure could encourage a Pathfinder to do other silly, illegal or dangerous things. Consider peer pressure to lie, steal, disobey parents, have sex outside marriage, or many other inappropriate choices.

Consider also that positive peer pressure can be used to encourage good behavior. Choosing Godly friends, becoming part of groups like Pathfinders, and speaking up to encourage good choices around your friends will help you act on the positive side of peer pressure.
