Nix the Cliques!

Let’s make a pact – a contract.  Yes, you and me.  This story is about trying to prevent one of the most difficult situations a young person can face.  Peer pressure is one thing.  And wanting to be accepted is another.  But a clique, in its worse sense of the word, can be devastating for some child or youth who feels they don’t fit in – anywhere!  Let’s break it down…..and then try to do something that will help our young understand and decide for themselves what’s right and what’s not.
