Dear Queenie,

  My grown-up daughter lives with me and I don’t make her pay rent. She has a part-time job and helps out around the house, but she is always complaining about how much she has to do and she wants me to pay her for what she does.

  Queenie, what should I tell her?—Disgusted

 

Dear Disgusted,

  Tell her you will be happy to pay her for helping around the house when she starts paying you rent for the privilege of living there – and if she does not like that solution, she is free to find another place to live.
