im 18 and have a part time jobs where I work weekends and the odd evening but my parents are demanding me £25 towards rent, how is this fair?
Lol stop being an ungrateful little ****, you're 18 and working so why shouldn't you help? Be grateful it''s only £25, or you could move out and get your own house and pay £300+ a month for rent
You're an adult, you're working - why shouldn't you pay your way? That's what adults have to do! Goodness, I'm 16 and if I had an income I'd offer to pay. They (presumably) still provide for you.
I don't agree with parents charging their teenage or adult children rent.
But your parents may have severe financial problems and need contributions towards household bills.
Are their any bills or services that only you use?
Things like monthly mobile bills or sky subscription.
If so, you could offer to have those services transferred into your name so you make all the payments.
Your parents are not forcing you to pay or robbing you, they are asking you.
They may be asking you in a way that sounds like a demand.
But you are under no legal obligation to pay- they cannot take you to court to force you to cough up.
The thing you have to consider is- it is worth paying the £25 a month?
If you refuse to pay- your parents could cancel some accounts to reduce household bills, stop providing you free meals or even ask you to move out.
I chose to leave rather than pay to be treated like that and will never set foot in my parent's home again.
Here we go again.........
Paying board to parents is ridiculous.
Don't breed and bring them into the world if you can't afford to provide for them no matter how old. Give them the opportunity to start saving for their own life.
oh no... here we go again!
nah i dont think its right if you're like struggling but see, when i lived at home I didnt pay rent and things like that, but I shared ALL my food buys and re-stocked the bathroom and toiletries and that
and like handed over emergency money and gave my siblings cash and that, so maybe thats why i didnt get asked to pay rent. Oh and like didnt ask my mum or anyone for anything so i didnt stress em out and that.
wow i say "and that" a lot **** me haha
