"the Wonder Of Boys" by Gurian, great book... that said, does he have any signifigant male involved in his life? Unkle, Grandfather, family friend? anything???
It's only 6% so I would leave it to keep growing as retirement, especially with how young you are, by retirement age, that money will really have GROWN! I would just be as frugal as you can be with the rest of your spending, to free up as much money as possible to put on consumer debt.
