Can anyone give me a rough idea of the current 'board' costs that one would expect a 17year old, just starting full time work, to pay? My daughter has finally conceded that she should pay board and has 'quoted' a figure that I paid to my parents over twenty years ago!! Personally, the amount is not an issue, we don't need the money. However, I feel she needs to understand that now she is working, things will not always be handed to her on a plate. What do you think? Am I being too hard?
