I am 25 years old and when i am at church i like to play around with the kids and youth. I play games with them, joke around with them, and often i take them to the store before church to get them something to eat. Frankly a lot of my church members have a problem with this. They ask me why do i hang out with younger kids and not kids my age. The thing is most of the people my age at my church are boring meaning they just text on their phones for the whole church service. Yes i am 25 with no job, no car/license and still live with my parents. But i just graduated with my bachelors and doing an internship so am bettering myself everyday and will continue to strive for success everyday. I had a rough start to life but as of now am starting to get my life back on track. I just like to have fun and enjoy life. I feel life is too short. So i am going to have as much fun as i can while i can.

Never, EVER feel bad about making others happy. It is a shame that they cannot see how you are able to reach out and care about younger kids. So few of them have anyone to do this for them.

Well said Meows.

Thank you : )

Thank you, That's exactly why i do it. Because the church pays no attention to them so i comfort them so they know at least someone cares about them.

I understand. I work with young juvenile male offenders in a correctional facility. Most of them benefit a lot from someone simply listening to them. They have never, ever had any positive feedback or direction.

Thank you, but they don't seem to understand that.

Not sure why you're asking strangers on a website what they think about you. Just do what's right for you, that's what matters

Thank you, and is less asking people what they think about me, and more of trying to see how people feel about my situation.

If you read the Bible---you know the book your church goes by---it will say one should remove all signs of impropriety from your life. I think the term is remove "the appearance of evil". (1 Thess. 5:22) When someone is 25 and hangs out with children---it screams PEDO to the church going members around you. Get it????

How SICK that you would jump to such conclusions! Believe it or not, there are many many people who do care about young kids and are very good at relating with them. Pedos are NOT the majority thank God. They just get all the air time!

Best Answer

I feel like that's jumping to extremes. Like meowsolini said there are people who really care about kids like myself. What am doing is not wrong their perception is.
