£200 per month sounds fair.

From memory I was giving my Mum and Dad close to that 20 years and was only working probably 25 hours a week in a shop before I went off to Uni.

If he gets meals and access to Sky TV etc then it won't bankrupt him but is enough for him to realise that if he moves out its not easy.

Thanks mate, not interpreted as preachy at all

Regarding the housework thing, it's more about giving him something to do that also kind of helps him feel part of the family. His default is to sit in his room in his pyjamas on the PlayStation all day, and we've found that leads to him getting quite depressed and detached. We're hoping that doing some very light chores will sort of break the cycle and give him a sense of purpose, or something.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. More power to you.

Fair play mate. I'd say give him some housework to do but don't put him under pressure to get it done.

Food shopping is a good one. Get's him out the house, but if he's too sick then can order it all online. Job still gets done & he can chill out on the PC getting it done, it's what I have to do sometimes :thup:
