From Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul


Peer pressure is a thing that every child goes through.
But you have to remember that to yourself you must be true.
Know that there are times to follow and there are times to lead.
Do what you think is right, do things at your own speed.
Don’t worry about what others think, don’t worry about being cool.
Focus on friendships and the grades you get in school.

Jaimie Shapiro, twelve
