Peer Pressure Gauge will help empower kids in grades K-6 to recognize and resist negative peer pressure and learn to say “No!” even as forces around them escalate to give in to the peer group. Children will gain the social emotional skills of having self-confidence and listening to an inner voice while resisting influences which can change their values and behaviour. Norbert the “namuh” is challenged by his classmates to participate in an activity he knows not to do. He risks being insulted and losing his friends. Norbert’s imaginative descriptions of how it feels to have your peer pressure gauge continue to rise will draw readers in, while they witness his internal deliberation as he tries to let his inner voice shine! Teachers, parents, and kids alike will enjoy this imaginative story of how escalating peer pressure feels as they learn the skills necessary to triumph over the pressure to conform.
Includes tips for parents, teachers and counsellors on how to help children recognise and resist negative peer pressure.
