Is it fair for a teen to pay room and board when they are working? What age do you think a teen should start paying room and board? I think it gives teens an idea of what it'll be like when they get their own place and have to pay rent, food, utilities, etc-. My daughter is almost 17. She works part time and pays us $25.00 every two weeks towards groceries and in the summer when she works full time, she pays us $100.00 a month. She does not mind at all and says that she wants to help out.
