A peer group is a group comprising people of similar age, background and social status. The term 'peer group' is commonly used to describe those who might reasonably be consi…dered to influence a person's life in terms of perceived appropriate behaviour and beliefs. Age is probably the most important factor when speaking of a person's 'peers'.
A peer group is more than just a group of friends. Within a classroom, the peer group could be the entire class. Therefore it is nearly impossible, unless in complete isolatio…n, to be away from a peer group. Each of us needs to learn those social skills to allow us to function efficiently with our peers.. Looking at the disadvantages, a major is peer pressure. This is when some people feel forced to be someone they are not or do something they don't want to do due to peer pressure.. Depending on your own ability to work within a peer group, criticisms can be hurtful. Criticisms can be constructive or deconstructive. We just need to be careful how we say things to and how we hear things from our peers. Criticisms help us learn.. Competition. We are competitive beings by nature but competition can be both positive and negative. Positive in that we strive to be the best we can be; negative in that we can feel constantly inferior and always 'lose'. Again this depends on your own social skills.. The success or failure of peer groups depends on the social literacy of each individual within that peer group. Being over sensitive to comments made by others, or falling into the traps of peer pressure (VERY easily done by our youth) can give us negative feelings and opinions towards peer grouping. Is there disadvantages? Yes of course, but like anything, you only get out what you put in.

It is because schools group people of the same age together.
Depends which peers you mean. As a young person we look up to our peers because of their ability, qualifications, age, background and social status. They are our 'elders and b…etters' Or do you mean a member of the nobility in Great Britain and Ireland, important by rank only

The special importance of a peer group is the fact that it helpspeople learn to evaluate each other through the eyes of theirpeers. They can also gain important feedback from …one another aboutdifficult situations.
