My son is living at home while he is student teaching. Because he is technically still in school and does not get a salary (and in fact PAYS for the privilege of teaching ) we do not expect him to pay. He is expected to do his own laundry, keep his room relatively clean, clean up after himself and take care of shoveling and/or mowing the lawn. No particuar rules since he is a VERY nice young man (thank goodness). We do ask that he call if he is coming home really late or not at all.
