It's October 3rd!
The popularity of the film has led to October 3 being recognized as Mean Girls Day every year, due to this famous scene: “On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.” Cady recalls. “It’s October 3rd,” she replies, too excited about the exchange to notice that the topic could not have been more mundane.
This movie does a great job at teaching young adults that looks and popularity doesn’t directly translate into success. The true message of Mean Girls is to be more thoughtful and caring to your peers and that bullying and peer pressure is never the answer!
Check out this video from Youtube that shows what peer pressure can do to a young girl!
Positive peer relationships are the result of healthy relationships and can create a bond that lasts well past their teenage years. Peers can set good examples for each other. Having friends who are committed to doing well in school or doing their best in a sport can influence teens to be more goal-oriented, too. Peers who are kind and loyal influence their friends to build these qualities in themselves as well. Friends can also help each other with decision making. If your teen is surrounded by positive peer pressure and they are struggling with a decision that may not be the best choice, those peers will step in and talk them through why they shouldn’t do it. During a time when teens often don’t want to come to parents with their problems, these positive peers can be a huge asset in good decision making.
Positive peer pressure can also help your teen step out of their comfort zone and try new things. New experiences are an important part of a teen’s development, and friends can encourage each other to join a new club or try out for the school play. Things that your teen may feel uncomfortable doing on their own can feel less intimidating when they’re done with friends.
We should always encourage are children to be themselves and express themselves freely.
Mean Girls is a movie that has been seen and loved all over the world for almost 20 years. It can be seen in many different langauges which has helped young girls everywhere relate to the young girls represented in the movie.
Be kind to one another!
