  • No way. They are 4 and 5 and I see other kids doing it and they are zombies. Trying to avoid it for as long as possible.

  • Not regular video games. some of the v-tec games that arnt based on violant characters (such as spiderman ect). And it's very much regulated. He doesnt get to play for hours on end. Maybe one hour at most.

  • Yes they are almost 5 and almost 6 and they just started this past November. They are only allowed to play E rated games and only with permission. Sometimes they go a week without playing at all.
