I am single mother working 40+ hours a week. What chores/responsibilities are reasonable for young adult living at home? Should parent be expected to cook, shop and do all cleaning for the shared home? My son is 19 and I expect him to take the car I have him and pay insurance on to grocery store if he needs groceries and I haven't gotten to it. It seems many parents are doing everything for their adult at home kids and I find it absurd!!! Your thoughts? What do most parents expect from their 19 year old kids at home.

Well my 13 and 10yo's help with the cleaning and do their own laundry. I would expect my children at 19 to be helping with a lot more. Cooking at least once a week and if they want anything specific to eat, they can get it themselves. The same if we have run out of anything.
My children will also be paying board/rent and contributing to the household bills.

That is his decision on how to raise his daughters. I personally would not allow it, but that is my choice as a parent just as it is his choices as a father.
