How much rent should you pay your parents?

When my son lived with me for about 18 months while working and earning he paid rent based on an agreed estimate of the additional cost (to me) arising from his living with me. I didn't want to make a profit from him. The figure amounted to a significant contribution but was much less than he would have paid if he had shared an appartment with roomies. Now, I don't know your or your parents' cricumstances, and this kind of calculation may or may not be appropriate in your case.
