What is a peer group?
Why is it important?
The question is asking why is it important for children to have friends. Is it important they have a group of friends so those friends can:
--provide opportunities for competition?
--foster love and understanding?
--teaching about the world outside the family?
Really, I see 2 perfectly acceptable answers.
is a social group consisting of people who are equal in such respects as age, education or social class
Your definition of a peer group is correct. A child's peer group is the other children in the day care.
Which do you think is the best answer?
