Of the various factors that can have influence on young adults, the family and friends stand out most. But there is disagreement on which of the two is the most important of all factors. My view is that in most cases, it is friends who have the most important influence on young adults.
According to social psychologists, when children become young adults, they undergo some psychological changes. When they are young, children love their parents so much that they simply adore them, imitating their speech and behaviour and trying to learn everything from them eagerly. As they become older, however, they begin to see that their parents are not as perect as they thought, though they still consider their parents better than any other adults. But the process of change still goes on. BY the time they are adults themselves, they have changes so much that they take their parents as equal adults belonging to a different and out-of date generation. Consequently, they go out more often and the influence of their parents begin to decrease.
With the image of their parents as perfect or imperfect idols gone from their minds. Young adults turn to the outside world. Those whom they are associated with most are those who are of the same generation. These youngsters drink, smoke,chat, and play together, and they share the same or similar views and values. At this stage, they may not be able to find new idols, but they certainly influence each other in many aspects. They may also be influenced by many other factors in the outside world, but, comparatively speaking, the influence on them comes mostly from those around them——young paople who are their friends.
Of course, not all children change in this way. Some of them may still stick to their parents, or even their elder sisters and brothers； and some may turn to their teachers. But, generally speaking, at a certain stage, friends are the most important influence on young adults.
