    Basically I've just moved home from uni for the summer and my mum wants to charge me rent over the holidays. I work part time and my wage can be between £300-£500 a month. I spend hardly any time in the house and mainly buy most of my food. My mum doesn't need the money as she easily coped when I wasn't there. I'm not sure what to do as it's causing so much conflict and I want to save my money for uni

    Are you implying you are still thinking about living in your mums house and not paying rent, even if she asked you for it?



    I don't know the dynamic between you and your mother, but could it be possible she's currently in some sort of state of financial hardship?

    Maybe talk to her, tell her that you want to save for uni, work something out with her.

    I personally would pay the rent. If you genuinely can't afford it or feel your mum is asking for too much, come to an agreement on a lower rent.
