Is my kid the only one?

Does your child live only to "play games" wii, computer, DS and nothing else seems to matter, like school work, jobs around the house? Please don't say "have them do those things BEFORE they get to play games, WE DO!!! I wonder if it's just making him lazy????

  • We do not have a WII or any other games like that. You are the parent you should control how much your child plays games.

  • I have no rules set up for game play chores etc... We have PS2 and 3...and everything else. He still prefers to be outside or with friends and if he is asked to do something, he does it.

  • My son only gets to play computer games for one hour each day. Some days he doesn't want to use it at all, other days he gets annoyed when time is up. It doesn't matter what order things are done in around here, as long as they get done and he follows the rules.

  • Thank you for reinforcing our decision to not have video games at our house.
