By Jennifer Kenny

1     Mike was taking an important math exam. He had studied long and hard and really knew how to solve the problems on the test. His best friend, Richard, sat across from him during the test but felt quite differently. He had played video games instead of studying and felt very unprepared. He started to whisper to Mike asking for the answers. Mike began to feel very uncomfortable. He didn't want to share answers because he knew that was wrong, but he didn't want to ruin a friendship either.
2     Samantha knew her parents worked hard to provide everything she and her brothers needed. She knew that they were ok, but really had no extra money to spare. Usually what she had was enough, but she kept seeing the girls at school wearing a certain brand of jeans. She kept seeing the commercial for the jeans on TV as well. Now she really wanted some pairs for herself. She believed she needed them to fit in.
3     Have you ever experienced similar feelings to Mike and Samantha? If you did, you felt pressure. Everyone feels pressure at one point or another.
