Adolescence is one of the hardest stages in human development. There are so many changes going on physically, emotionally, cognitively and socially. In the world of social media from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and so on, how can we be assured that our children are protected from negative media influences and even with peer pressure influences. Influence affect how we think, feel and behave. We are influenced in all kinds of ways throughout our lives throughout a single day. Influence can come from our knowledge, experience, culture, attitudes, family and friends. Influence can be direct (someone telling you to do something) or indirect (wanting to be part of a group and so doing something they are doing). Whether influence is positive or negative depends on the outcome or the consequences of the influence.
