What is appropriate teenage/adult touching
I have a male friend who is in his late 20's who has a very close family who he is friends. The family has two teenage daughters, age 14 and 11. He use to rent a room from the family. He no longer lives with the family, but is still just as close. Is it appropriate for him to be resting with the girls, poking at their ribs ( he says to tease them ) or for the 11 year old to want to want to lay a pillow on his lap when they watch movies and snuggle with him and have him play with her hair. To me it seems a little too hands on. Am I over reacting?
