If you feel it is, then it is for you. I guess it would depend on a few things.

I would not mind as long as he's respectful. Maybe he just likes your company. You all are not that far apart in age.

If you don't feel comfortable, there is probably a reason. When I was a teenager, I always hung out with older adults because it made me feel cool. Once I became an adult, I realized that it wasn't very appropriate that they let me hang out with them.

If you feel uncomfortable, then yes it's an issue.... is it possible the 6 y/o wants the older one there to supervise (or the parents do?)

I wouldnt care if i were comfortable around him.  That age would become like another brother to me.  Talk to him as a soon to be adult if you are uncomfortable.

Is the 17 yr responsible for his Sister or can she come alone? He might be coming over to escapethe stress of home( home could be great, but since its HIS house, he might not feel it is. ) Maybe you have better snacks,. Just keep the relationship respectful, and make sure to make friends with his mom. That will help you make sure the universe is ordered.

it started with him hanging out with me and his mother. now he comes without her. its not to watch his sister although shes always there but ive babysat her alone before just as his mother has babysat my kids. i guess im not comfortable with it cause i was only into one thing at that age. thanks for putting my mind at ease. hes never made a pass at me so i allow him to come hang out. should it ever happen i will address it then. thanks again ladies. :)
