S/O I will be charging my teens rent

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

When my kids turn 15 they can get jobs and pay me $50 a week for living expenses.

It will then go into a savings account that they don't know about, so that when they're 18 and ready to move out on their own they will have a little money to help with the costs.

When they're 15, huh? Well, at least you're going to give it back to them at some point. I know a woman who was requiring her kids to completely take care of themselves from about age 15 on, only providing a roof over their heads.

Whatever floats your boat.

I'd rather teach them how to properly save right from the beginning, rather than trick them into saving. But to each their own.

I can see charging for gas if you are providing transportation and maybe special foods that they want but no more than that.
