Default mentoring some kids..

One of the families from my church has been struck with compounded tragedy in the past few years. A family of 5 has been reduced to a family of 3 after the loss of one of the young twin boys and most recently the father. I've been helping fix up the house since the dad (Shane) couldn't bring himself to do any upkeep after the loss of one of his sons. (Completely understandable) So I have been trying to teach the other two boys a few things about upkeep on the house and in case of emergency things like the water shutoff, fuse panel, and how the GFCI box's work. I really want to help as much as I can as I know these boys will need some form of positive male role model or they will end up turning into complete sh!theads but bat the same time I don't want to overstep my boundaries and do more harm than good... anyone else experienced in this area at all that could kick me any advice would be appreciated.

That's my goal, just don't want to try and replace Shane in any way... They have been helping me out with all the remodeling I've been doing this week and their mom has been really appreciative of the little bit of sanity and normalcy in the house. My biggest worry is her becoming too reliant and not being able to handle things if I'm not there to help. They are really good kids and I just want to help make sure they learn how to be men as they grow. The boys have been asking me to stay every day when I am getting ready to leave and they get pretty upset when I leave. I'm just not sure if I'm hurting more than helping at this point. We have a blast while I'm there though so I hope I'm doing more good than harm
