I charge them rent but also pay them to babysit. They have a pretty sweet deal. My Husband works out of province i'm essentially a single mother 2 week of each month and my youngest son has special needs. Laundry is very low on my list of things to do in my kids waking hours lol

Sorry, I thought this was the broken arm post and was wondering how your comment was at all relevant. Never mind me... How is your roommate mutant though?

I agree! I don't know about the rest of all but personally the women gave me life, least I can do is support her when she can't support herself. I actually think making your mother pay rent is disgusting. But I guess it depends what relationship you have with her.

Having an extra person living on the home costs money (food, water, electricity, etc.). Maybe the OP can't afford to feed and house her mother without a little extra income. Who knows what the rent is. It could just be a token, like the mother is paying $300 for what should be an $800 basement suite.

So, if the person who gave birth to you was a crazy bitch or a freeloader or anything not so pleasent, you'd let them live with you (for free)?

My Grandmother lives with my Aunt. All of her sons and daughters offered to house her for free but she refused. She insists on paying rent. So don't assume. Maybe I missed it but no where in that FML did I read that the mother was paying rent. Only that she was bitching.

I think parents who live with their kids should help out financially unless the kid is both able and happy to fully support the parent. My mother kicked me out when I was 17, but if she really needed help I'd let her live with me because she gave me life. I'd be willing to split costs with her to keep her bills down but I wouldn't fully support her. It's struggle enough to support myself.

That's kinda rude...firstly she is her mother and probably washed OP's clothes when she was younger and also housed OP when she was younger, so if anything the mom deserves the right to live with her. Just sayin!

As a parent you are supposed to raise and take care of your kid. She is letting her mother stay. It's a favor that she doesn't owe her mother for doing her job as a parent. Her mother has no right to complain. Op has 3 kids to worry about. Laundry is the least of her problems. Her mother needs to be gracious and understanding. If it bothers her that much, she can do it herself. Op has a lot on her plate and the last thing anyone in her position needs is to listen to complaining about non issues .

Or OP's mom could be a total bitch and OP is letting her rent out of the kindness of her heart... It's not always easy having your mother around, especially when you are trying to raise children.
