Peer Pressure | People-Pleasing | The Fear of Man

Why do you buy the clothes you buy? How much time do you spend in front of the mirror? Have you ever exaggerated to make yourself look better to others? Are you scared of being rejected or ridiculed? Is making the winning goal and being the hero of the game a fantasy? Do you ever receive praise and feel like an imposter, who isn’t worthy? Finally…are you experiencing social anxiety, feeling peer pressure, and frustrated trying to please people?

Wendy Wood designed this course to help teenagers and adults get to the heart of why they feel social anxiety, anger, fear, or sadness at the way others respond to them. Trying to please people wears us out; however, God calls us to love Him with our whole hearts. A divided heart that loves the praise and acceptance of other people does not honor God. You can understand your heart and see why living to please God is the best way to live and the way to combat social anxiety!

Course Audience:

Intended for teenagers and young adults experiencing peer pressure, this course includes video lessons, interactive activities, reading, and thinking. For teenagers, we encourage parents to go through the material with them, encouraging them and discussing the content. This one-on-one is important. We provide a teen-only group, a parent-only group, and an adult-only group on the Lemon Grove Social platform, where you can connect with others who are like-minded and struggle with trying to please other people. Social learning can bring accountability and more encouragement.

Course Author & Doctrine: 

This course was written by Wendy Wood, a certified teacher, who holds her biblical counseling certification through The Association of Certified Biblical Counseling. God has provided us with biblical solutions to peer pressure and people-pleasing! For more information on the doctrine that guides our study and use of the Bible, please visit The Master’s Seminary Doctrinal Statement, which we have adopted.

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching and Learning is Explicit!

Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students try to construct meaning themselves.


Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay or read or do a geometry proof, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.

Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.

Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
