The safest way to do this is to (as root) use chown -R username:group /home/username where the user's home directory is the same name as the user. Just using "*" while you're in /home/username will miss a lot of important "hidden" files (filename starts with .) and the home directory itself (/home/username). And, if you happen to be in the wrong directory, can really mess up your system if you accidentally change the ownership of system files.
