How to Live with Your Adult Child

Consider Charging for Household Expenses


Rent, groceries, utility bills--all of these are a factor when your child moves back home. Some parents choose not to charge their child rent, depending on the reason for moving home and whether they have a limited income due to unemployment or student status.

However, charging your child room and board, no matter how little, can help him learn to manage his finances and prepare him to live independently when he moves out. It might also reduce the chances of you becoming resentful if he is spending money elsewhere while depending on you.
