Star of “Braxton Family Values” Toni Braxton is trying to teach her sons life lessons in her own house.

The singer-turned-reality star makes her pre-teen sons pay rent wiht their allowance. She says she wants to help them learn life lessons now before they get out the house.

She told MSN that she charges Denim, 11, $1.50 a week from his $15 a week allowance and his 9-year-old brother Diezel $1.00 of his $10 a week allowance for rent.

She also makes them do chores around the house to earn their allowance and charges them for utilities and power.

“So they give me, like, $3 a week out of their allowance,” Braxton said, “I told them one day you’ll have to pay rent, so I’m helping you. They get upset, ‘$3 a week mom? $3?!'”

Would you charge your kids rent and bills to help teach them a lesson?
