Taking time every day to appreciate your loved ones for all that they do can help you reconnect as a family.

Effective therapy is about a number of things: experience, expertise, a clear diagnosis, concise goals and the knowledge and the tools to effectively navigate difficult life issues. It’s also about possessing a genuine concern for the patients and their challenges. I strive to incorporate an effective and well-balanced mix of the aforementioned aspects in the counselling process in order to maximize outcomes and provide genuine healing and wholeness to my patients. I view therapy as a safe place to explore relationships, whether those relationships are with people (family, co-workers, partners) or things (food, money, alcohol). I also feel an important part of therapy is addressing the social, economic, and cultural influences on a person and that the process of therapy should be a collaborative one, with the client seen as the “expert” on their life.

Should your kids pay rent?

My 21 year old pays me some money from her student finance. Once she gets a job, she'll pay some from her earnings and probably save most so she can buy a house. I can't afford to give her money for a deposit, so hopefully, this will help a bit.

Of course. Nothing is free and the sooner they know that, the better.

I'm an adult already. I'd feel I were sponging if I didn't pay my way.

If the kids are already working and they are done with school, absolutely!!! There's no reason for you do to spoil them.

I think if you don't have a mortgage and are basically just making a profit from your kids living with you, that's a bit crap. A contribution towards expenses would be different.

Of course, nothing is free. They need to know how to be responsible.

I think it's a bit weird for you to charge rent on your kids. They are your kids after all, aren't you supposed to help them out?

I didn't pay rent before but I helped pay bills. I even got groceries so it's a fair trade-off.

My parents don't expect me to pay rent so I prefer to help out around the house with groceries and utilities, etc. It is my home and I don't see why I should feel like a tenant

To encourage a sense of responsibility and financial management, yes. They should pay rent but a slightly lower rate than the would if they were living in an apartment elsewhere

I don't let my kids pay rent, instead, I have advised them to use those funds and invest in property instead. They own flats which they rent out which I believe is a very good move in the long term. Property is very expensive

My sister's kids are against the idea of living at home once they start working. They say they want to be independent and fend for themselves

If they don't have a job, letting them stay in the house is the least I can do to help them. I wouldn't want to add pressure to them by asking for rent.
