esbs website poll results – Would you charge your adult children board?

With about 30% of 25-30 year olds still living with their parents*, this month we wanted to know if you would charge your grown children board.

Just over half of those surveyed were feeling particularly generous, intending to either save the board money to gift back to their children, or not charge anything at all. Just under half would charge a little to cover the additional bills, while only 3% would charge their children market rate.
