Topic: Certain body image
1) What do you think are the most intense emotional, social or physical challenges for Grade 8 teens? Explain Why.
Sometimes getting similar achievements as your friends in which you also worked for, for example, if a friend managed to achieve something in a sport you also like, and your body shapes and skills are different, you are less likely to achieve the same as your friend in a sport, making yourself feel different about the sport or yourself.
2) How can we deal with this type of pressure or expectations?
Most of the type in sports everyone is expected to do an awesome job, meaning that any mistake can lead to your team mates yelling at you, which is discouraging. A techinique that I have used in a lot of these situations is to simply ignore expectations and the scolds and try your best, even if others think that is not good enough.
