I think idea of charging and giving it back when they move out is a great idea. It would give the kid a little boost in life.

I go to school full time, 12 credits a semester, and I work 40 hours a week. My dad paid rent when he was 17. As long as I'm in school, I do not have to pay rent. Dads rule. If I didn't go to school, he would make me pay rent and I would be okay with that.

It sounds like your daughter is on the right track. I wouldn't charge her rent. Sounds like a busy girl, and paying rent would be one more thing she would need to worry about.

Full time school & a good kid, no rent. Drop school or start screwing up, rent.

I never paid rent....probably because i moved out about a week after high school graduation. I never went back. My other siblings can't say the same and my patents are currently dealing with the results of supporting a unresponsible entitlement attituded young adult and his girlfriend who also lives under my parents roof.

I didn't live at home while in school but my rent was payed. I worked to pay everything but rent. I took 18-25 credit hours and worked as much as possible ( farm hand hours varied by time of year sometimes over 50). I say don't charge rent let her focus on the things that matter like her jobs and school. Unless of course you pay for everything and school is payed for. If that's the case 200 a week sounds fair.

I'm in the free rent while you are school camp. That's how my parents did it, likely how I'll treat my daughters unless I have a change of mind in the next 10 years.

Entitled fuckface, Obama phone toting, food stamp using, debt dodging, welfare living generation. That's why so many people feel they should charge rent and in many cases I agree.

Might as well not stoop to a lower level.

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.

Some people's kids don't understand fiscal responsibility. For example, one of my oldest friends decided he could afford everything he could ever want after he worked at the job I got him for about six months. Traded his 93 mustang in for $500 on an overpriced Audi, ran off and rented an apartment, had a bike payment, and was on disability.

Let's just say his credit is ruined after a repo of the Audi, having to default on the lease for the apartment, girlfriend he ran off with took a bunch more money, and now if trying to sell the r6 because he is still making payments on it. Some just don't get it, his parents gave him everything on a silver platter and never pushed him to do anything with his life.

Finally now that he is almost 24, he realized his modeling and body building career isn't going to work long term. He decided to go to unoh for motorcycles this fall. I have mixed feelings, since he never really caught on when I was working on vehicles when he was over, or when I was working on his vehicle.

Most older people I knew got kicked out of the house at 18, my parents included. They weren't going to college though. You are a special kind of stupid, aren't you.

My lack of testicles statement stands.
All those kids that got kicked out of home when they were 18 are now showing their parents the "finger" and send them to nursing homes since they feel no responsibility to care for their parents.

Sounds like parents did not do any "parenting" in the generation you describe. I like to think that those are disfunctional "families" that you describe and not the norm.

My rents charged me, $200/month. I got it all back when I moved out. I was working full time while in school.

So where is this set of rules and regulations on parenting? Wait, you mean is up for interpretation? Say it ain't so. You feel that an adult living at home with her parents should have a free ride and asking for rent is crazy. In many opinions this could possibly, and logically, lead to an entitlement attitude. Not to say wait her way is a guarantee.

If you think what I describe is not normal you are blind, or refuse to face reality. This is possibly caused by parenting. Did you get a free ride?
