Peer Pressure vs. True Friendship! Surviving Junior High, by Dr. Orly Katz

Different

It all started as a joke…
It was on one of those days when we could feel that summer had almost arrived.
Three boys of my class got hold of one of the quiet geeky kids, and for no special reason decided to pull a prank on him… they tied him to a chair in the middle of the playground and stripped off all his clothes…even his pants and shorts!
The kid, who was given the name: ‘The Stripper’ stood for a few minutes in the center of a large circle of laughing kids…and you really don’t want to know what happened in the end…
You don’t have to be the wicked witch to be popular…
The way to stand up to peer pressure and be a true friend, without trampling over other people’s feelings, is already inside of you.
