Negative Peer Relationships Affects Teenage Boys on Different Levels

Teenage boys want to be accepted by others and be included in a group of their peers, and sometimes these teen boys will go to any lengths to ensure their place within a group. In order to find the acceptance that these teens are seeking, they would possibly engage in high-risk behaviors to impress the other boys or to impress a girl. Throwing wild parties, doing dangerous stunts, playing pranks such as egging a house, bullying others, completing the academic work of another, even using drugs and drinking alcohol are some of the high-risk activities that teen boys engage in while trying to find the acceptance and approval they are seeking.

The relationships your son has throughout his teenage years are a great influence on him for the rest of his life.
