My 13 year old son has a friend that lives a few houses away. He reminds me of Eddie Haskell from the Leave it to beaver show. Overly friendly until I catch him winging balls at my windows. He always invites himself over for dinner which doesnt bother me at all. My son tells me that he is failing all his grades and he recently went over his house and my son said you couldnt even walk around and it smelled horrible. So it makes sense why he always wants to come over here. How can I be a postive influence/role model without going too far? I just have a feeling that he could use some help of some sort even if it is just something simple....ideas???

Let him know (or have your son do it) that he's welcome in your house anytime but that he needs to respect you. It may take some time for him to feel comfortable with you but the more time he spends around you and your family (hopefully) the more you will rub off on him.
