    We take £150.00 per calendar month from our son, although he is 24 this is his 1st FT job as he has been in university. He lived at home and we 'kept' him while he was there, but he worked PT all through and didn't expect us to pay for anything else. (There were a few treats when money was available tho).
    He buys all his own clothes, toiletries, his snacks for work, runs a car (which he paid for), saves every month and is paying back his student loan.
    He has passed to enter the police, but due to funding, doesn't know when he will start.
    I know we could take more from him but as long as he is not squandering the rest we are happy to help.
  • i know i pay far too little (i give my mum 10% of my wages but she wont take any more). however, i do give her extra to do my washing and ironing because i simply dont have time during the week. if i lived on my own i'd do it at the weekend but she squeeks if i let it build up.

    i also help clean and just do general bits around the house, will give my sister lifts home from school & take her out for tea occassionally. i think she appreciates this far more than extra board because it makes her life a bit easier!

    she also said (rather oddly) she'd rather i spent my money on clothes and holidays because she had a mortgage and two kids at my age and would rather i spent it on myself before i have all that.
