Default Charge Rent Or Not

So my daughter graduated from High School this summer.

She is going to college now doing 15 credit hours driving back and forth 22 miles

She has a job working at an assisted living center making 210 per week.

She just got a second job working Tuesday and Thursday mornings four hours a morning so she should gross another 70 per week.

When I was 18 my mother started charging me rent, when I was 18 years old.

Should I let her live here for free while she is in college, or should I charge her a little for rent, 50 bucks or so.

What do you think.

My parents charged me rent, when I was working and in college. When I moved out, they gave almost all back. I suddenly had a years rent paid for.

Edit: If I remember, rent was like 100 a month.

My parents charged me rent but I wasn't in school, and only had 1 fulltime job. I say let her stay rent free since shes obviously no slouch.

I wouldnt charge rent since shes going to school and working. But maybe tell her as long as shes living tbere she pays 50 a week and you save will save it so she has money when she moves out or for a down payment on a new car or house when the time comes. Just a idea.

Sounds like she is working her butt of to make a little bit of money while going to school full time. I think not charging her rent would be alright as long as she continues what she is doing.
Now if she quits school and her jobs then yeah, charge her rent or boot her out.

I do like what MonkeyBiz's parents did for him too.

Honestly if my daughters were going to college I dont think I coukld make them pay rent. If I did it would probably go into an account for her later....kind of an emegency account cause we all she we need it.

She's in school working two jobs. As long as she's acting responsible and respecting you, your home, and your rules I wouldn't charge rent.

Charge her rent. Preparation for the real world. It can be a very small amount, but make her responsible for the timing of the payment too. Great training, it's not about the money received.

Charge her a portion of the utilities. That way she'll remember to turn the damn lights off....

I like the small rent, give it back later approach. I have heard of people with a few kids that age having them pay a utility bill. They don't leave lights on when they leave the room anymore.

As long as she is in school and not stripping, no rent unless your going to give it back when she moves out. If you do go with that plan, don't tell her that's the plan.

either charge rent and save it for her (I wish my parents would have)

or don't charge her anything unless she starts slacking or general disrespect for your house/rules. Don't threaten, it doesn't work. My dad tried that for a long time. Threatening just makes the kids laugh. I usually called his bluffs.

@DaveRamsey: Teach your kids how to handle money or they will be in your basement until they are 32.
