Social Presence

From these notes, it is possible to conclude especially that to be accepted socially something is desirable, if the acceptance will be tied with community of interest and cooperation. Lacerda (1998) makes a note in relation to the permanent presence in a group, standing out that the friendships for safer than are can arrive at the decline for the lack of maturity of its components. In general, the ones that more they need friendships, are the ones that have little conditions to conserve the friendship, for the fact of it uncontrol emotional conflicts among others. According to Lacerda (1998), the group has function to define papers and to help in the social identity of the integrant ones. Many adolescents not to participate of no group, mean the same that to be outside of the universe. The adolescents wait when they are in groups, that its participation welfare promotes to it, experience, emotions, satisfactions and fellowship.

The components of the group in general, follow its leaders. When they are in groups, the individuals start to have the same attitudes, the same vision on the things, this can be positive, when through the convivncia with the other integrant ones, if a healthful relationship awakes, and having emotional support through the experiences lived for excessively. On the other hand, positive aspects are not only ranks. The adolescent for times would not have capacity to make something was alone, but when in group it would be capable to make to only be accepted for the same, and this capacity to make something that would not make, can well not be seen. Lacerda (1998, P. 50) exemplifica this, displaying behaviors related with: ' ' … accesses of hatred, gestures of brutality, attitudes of cruel disrespect stops with the people, absence of responsibility for proper atos' '. Lacerda (1998) still displays that the group exerts much influence on the adolescent for the fact of the members the same to have gostos in common.
