Cody Archie tells FOX Business that when his daughter turned 18 they started charging her $200 per month rent. Their daughter, Kylee had graduated from high school in May 2022 and since she had decided to not go to college her first month of rent was for June 2022. It would have been $300 if she wanted to eat their food but she agreed to shop for herself.
"The purpose behind charging her rent was to get her to realize that everything is not free, and start to prepare her for adulthood. As you go into the workforce, you're going to have to be responsible for your own rent and food,"
Kylee paid rent till early 2023 when she moved into her own place.
This was all described in a TikTok video and lots of people pushed back on it saying things like "my parents tried this with me and it ruined our relationship". Another said "Feels more like a punishment more than anything".
So we're asking what age should someone have to pay rent to live with their parents or is just rent free forever because they're your folks?
