Today’s OPP is from “J” and she needs your help! Here’s what she said-


Yi Slacker and Steve,

I'm 16 and so is my friend. She started hanging out with a guy that's 22. I know they haven't had sex yet but she's done alot of other stuff with him. Her parents think that he's 18 and let her hang out with him all the time. They think she goes over to his parent's house but they really hang out at his apartment. I'm just worried that she is going to end up getting in trouble with him or do something she really regrets. Should I tell her parents what's really happening? I'm the only one that knows the truth so she'll know I'm the one that told her parents. I'm just really scared and don't want to lose my friend. What should I do? -J


What do you think that J should do? Should risk her friendship to save her friend from a possible mistake that she may regret?
