Is it right for a parent to charge their adult children rent?

What I am trying to ask is, should a grown up child still leaving with one or both parents be made to pay rent?

    I think a lot will depend on the full story like why is the adult child still leaving with parents? Anyway if it was me I would handle it this way. Rather than charge rent from my child, I would allow him to live rent free but he has put aside the amount of money he would otherwise be paying for rent it into either a savings or a retirement account. This way in a few years he/she could have saved up enough money to become a home owner.
