In this chapter, attention is again drawn to the role of families, school, and peers on the development of young people. The first part of the chapter looks into some of the common problems that young people face regarding their respective families such as the generation gap and insufficient parental supervision and care, while also identifying possible working strategies to address these problems. The second and last part present the problems of aspects such as pressure from school work, lack of aspiration, and interpersonal relationships in school, and undesirable influences, gang affiliation, and sexual orientation in the context of peers. Working solutions and analyses are also provided to address such issues. Each part provides a case illustration in which common situations are presented.

Keywords:   family, school, peers, working strategies, gangs, sexual orientation
