i became friends with this 18 yr kid from school, im 29. we are going into the same program so we have all of our classes together, we hang out b4 class, during breaks, and some times after class. we occasionally talk on FB. i notice lately that he comes to me with his problems, like his parents gettin divorced and peer pressure to party. its like he is seekin approval and advice more than just venting. it just seems like stuff he should be talkin to his parents about, guess i should be glad that he is talkin to someone about stuff, when i was that age i didnt have anyone 2 talk to about stuff and ended on the wrong path for awhile. im just feeling lil weird about him lookin up to me, being i didnt make the right choices when i was that young....he is a great kid, really smart, hard working, just had a sheltered home life.. your thoughts?

at 29 if you are making better choices than you did at 18, than being there for him at this time in his life while his family is going thru changes is a good thing. Keep giving him advice to keep him positive.

the past is the past, you are on the right path now, so why not lend the kid an ear? if it makes you that uncomfortable, tell him you need your space
