    Good points. If I'm honest, the trainers or the amount of board aren't important. It's the feeling we've made life a little bit too easy for him, and he's just cruising through with no thought as to his future, which is our fault, not his.

    I've never even heard of the brand, either. Some poncy Italian things with a zip.

    I'd have to ask the missus how much the bills are, sky apart.

    I guess that's the difference between the generations. He'll always be welcomed in the family home obviously, but now the access to higher education comes at such a cost it's not such an enticing option. He's a sweet, loving boy, and not afraid to get his hands dirty to earn a living, but I get the impression he'd rather be on Love Island etc than really graft for a living. That's probably more an indictment of my wife's and I's parenting skills than he though.

    To answer @Lambchop more fully, I grew up in a Spondon council house as the last child of six in a single parent household. I'm similar to @Boycie, in that a 1/3rd of my first wages went on board. Last January, my lad admitted to his mum that he'd bought trainers in the sales at the half price bargain of £250! I felt sick once I'd heard, and thought he'd not learned the true value of money, hence my quandary whether to teach him a lesson now, or let him discover it later for himself.

    Why, he's costing us money to keep him under our roof, why shouldn't he make a contribution when he's earning his own? I'm not looking to cover the cost, but I don't see the point in letting him think a roof over your head, and the costs that come with it don't need paying for.

    What do people think is a reasonable amount of board to charge young adults for living at home? Our lad has just turned 20, and takes home just under 1k a month, at the minimum wage. We charge him £100 board, but I've just noticed on the bank statement we're still paying him the same in pocket money through a standing order, which is obviously getting cancelled asap! What is a fair amount, should it be as little as possible seeing as we don't need the money? Or should we charge more, to better prepare him for adult life, with a mortgage/rental to consider, while putting that aside to help him on his way? I would love to hear what other parents think, and indeed those posters who pay board think?

    Championship clubs breakaway league

    Odd story, in that it seems to imply Mel is the main driver behind the desire for a better deal, yet barely mentions the other 14 clubs baulking at the deal on offer, never mind the rest of the EFL. Also makes no mention that a 1/3rd of the payment is for League Cup rights, which are presumably spread between the entire football pyramid on an appearance basis, not just the FL72. Given Mel's history of being an awkward thorn in the side of the EFL management, dragging them to the table re streaming etc, I wouldn't be surprised if they're briefing against him at this moment in time.
