16 year old high functioning downs with self-esteem problems

I am a teacher of a downs syndrome student and he is so smart, but he just makes really poor judgment. He love girls, but sometimes goes overboard with his advances. He tells people that he drinks and does drugs and even brought a large amount of money today to impress people.
I want to treat him normally, but want him to understand that he does not need to impress people. The parents are really worried about this behavior, but I am thinking that it is normal for a guy his age. What do you think?
