This 18yo kid has graduated high school and is planning to attend community college. His parents have informed him that if he expects to continue living with them past his 18th birthday he’ll need to pay rent for his room, plus half of the utilities. Before my 18th b-day over a month ago, my parents started talking about how they expect me to pay for rent then half the bills if I expect to stay there. They said that’s how much they agreed on so that’s what I’d have to pay if I wanna keep staying there. It’s not the paying rent that’s the problem, per se.
