  • Push the off button.

    If that doesnt work, unplug it and hide the cord. ;)

    When he finishes the homework he may be allowed a little more computer time.

    I would limit his time to 30 min. before and 30 min. after he has completed his work, that is MORE than enough time. He needs other things to develop his little brain like reading outside play, imaginary play ect.

  • Plan activities for the two of you. He would probably enjoy playing games with you, reading, going to the library, the park, etc.

  • unplug it seems to work for me. He is only four. Hide the cord or make it a reward. When he does his homework he earns _______ mins on the computer.
