    Introduction: Adolescent girls face a variety of challenges growing up, most of which are brought upon them by the pressures of the society. Regardless of ethnicity and culture, almost all teenage girls face peer pressure and parental pressure in one form or another. This alters the way they behave in a social setting, drastically. The aim of this survey is to study the effects of different factors on the social behavior of adolescent girls. Materials and Methods: This is a questionnaire- based study. An online form made on surveyplanet.com was circulated among school-going teenagers and young college students (ages 13–17) to collect data about their experience as teenagers. A total of 100 people took this survey. These data were then represented graphically using appropriate statistical methods. Result: Peer pressure and the expectations of both society and self, play a major role in shaping the behavior of an individual with each person reacting to a given circumstance in a different and unique manner. Yet, most girls face self-confidence and self-esteem issues which hinder their healthy intellectual development. Conclusion: Most girls were afraid of being judged by the society and had self-confidence issues. Hence, it can be concluded that peer pressure, parental pressure, social constraints and the desire to excel and be something more drive the social behavior of young girls.
