Note: No peer pressure is a letter from a mom to her firstborn. She wrote this about three years ago when her son showed signs he can make decisions of his own. She is now posting it with high hopes her eldest son will chance upon this letter. It would make her happier if her three other boys read this and learn from their Kuya firstborn.
When you were just our little baby, I decide what you will wear for the day. I even arrange play dates with children I only approved of.
Now that you are a growing boy about to reach his teen years, you decide who your friends are and what clothes you will wear.
You have been very vocal of your own choices. Perhaps, most of your decisions are influenced by your peer’s choices and reactions. You do not want to be the laughing-stock thus you go with the flow. Or maybe it is human nature to listen and copy your own age group’s choices.
