    Two of my friends have been a big brother/big sister since they were 19, so yes, he is "big" enough.

    It's pretty fun, but can be awkward at times. It also can take a lot of commitment.

    I preferred volunteering on my own time for the handicapped.

    So, the fact that they have been big brothers/big sisters actually constitutes skill or the maturity of actually doing it properly?

    Being a Big Brother is probably one of the greatest things you can do. I got in to the program when I was 6. My big brother ended up becoming my best friend that I've ever had. It's not about spending money or anything like that, so don't worry about that. My big brother was the type of guy that I could call at any time day or night and tell him I needed to talk and he would be there for me in a heart beat. I remember one of the many times my dad was supposed to come pick my sister and I up. He never showed or called. My mom called my big brother and about 20 mins he showed up. We just went out for ice cream, but it was the fact that he was there for me. He passed away in 93. That August would have been our 10 year anniversary. When my son was born in 01 I named him after my big brother.






    Cliffs: Do it. It's the most rewarding thing you can do and you'll change someone's life, including your own.

    :hs: I've thought about this but I figured I better get my life in order first before I can become someone anyone can look up to.
