For the Kids Sake, Argue with Them

Research finds that youth who were comfortable expressing their opinions at home were better at rejecting peer pressure ... especially teens who used reason to persuade their mothers instead of insults or whining.

Perhaps the independence cultivated at home carries over to school. Those comfortable in relying on their mothers when stressed are less likely to feel dependent on - and less influenced by - friends.
