I think there's a bit more to it than this...

Oh, definitely. MetroChick already pointed out that he has a toxic relationship with his parents, and apparently that's a mild term for it.

If he (or maybe it's a she) isn't paying rent, then rent should be paid. No matter where you live you're going to have some sort of housing expense, and if he isn't paying for room and board he should be. As you said,it gives him moral grounds to not pay for little extras all the time.

But, paying rent and examining expenses, putting money aside for an emergency fund, paying off debt before investing, making sure that there's enough money in the checking account to cover all the bills, and all the other suggestions we've made are all part of a sound financial plan, and apparently that's not something he's interested in.
