Just to be totally controversial...!! I think it's a bit mean of parents to charge their children a lot of money for living at home. Quite often the children are on rubbish wages and could barely afford to move out because of the cost of renting/buying a home. And to say that "they have to learn how much it costs to live" or something along those lines isn't really giving the youngsters enough credit - I think most know this already. When I moved out I was more shocked about the amount of effort it took to keep a house clean!
I'm all for giving the kids a good start in life - let them save up their money a bit and enjoy it a bit before they end up with massive mortgages that they will struggle to pay for the next 10 years!
