What is peer pressure? Even if you don’t know what that is, you definitely have experienced it. Do you think Harry’s actions were influenced by his fellow students? Do you think Ron would have dated Lavender if no one else had a girlfriend? And do you think Draco, if his family hadn’t forced him, would be a “bad guy?” We will answer all these questions and more in an open discussion, as well as do some experiments. We hope you’ll come!
