It’s not easy approaching a person of the opposite sex as there is a pressure of making a good first impression and a lack of familiarity.

Childhood and adolescence are the formative years of a person’s life. These are the years when everything happens for the first time. Childhood years are the most carefree years, devoid of worries and adolescence is the bridge between childhood and adulthood when we discover ourselves and experience new emotions. A lot of us experience discomfort, identity crisis, loneliness, peer pressure, low self-confidence and difficulties in overcoming generation gap. Counseling for bullying can help us deal with such difficult situations at school or college. It also enables teenagers to deal with breakups and relationship conflicts. Peer pressure counseling in India is becoming popular as parents as well as students understand the negative impacts these concerns can have on our well-being.
