Subject: Should I charge my retired parents for lodging?

Hello, okay, I'm not wanting to sound all wrong, but I'm looking to hear how other deal with the pension to retired parents staying with you.

My parents earn a total of 700 every single simday. Every day I make sure the money is set aside on their individual accounts. Now, this is of course the only thing to do, because my brother should some time in the future have his 50% share of whatever our parents will leave behind.

My question is; would it be fair if I charge a small sum every day for having my parents living with my family? Maybe holding back 100 every day? I don't need the money, anyone who knows my family would know that we do well - it's more a principal question. Or should I rather charge my brother for what I think is his share of the costs our parents do cause me?

Again, this is not a big thing, my parents do help in the house, and they don't eat that much etc. I realize it's not so much a question about my parents, but how or if my brother should be more involved. I would just like to hear what other families do?
