  • Just make sure she knows this can NEVER go to school. Teacher will take it away, or it could be stolen. Been there twice with teen son

  • I guess it's up to you. My kids like playing on mine, but I'm not going to get them their own simply because at ages 8 and almost 6 I don't want it getting lost or broken. We also have a limit on how long they can play games (because my son would play games all day if we let him!) and having their own handheld would make that a lot harder to enforce.

    My dh suggested getting dd a Nintendo DSi for her b-day next month because she would like a lot of the games that they have, but I'm on the fence because she hasn't actually asked for it, and dh is already telling her to get off the computer five times a day so I think giving her a toy and then telling her to leave it alone would be a bit frustrating for everyone!
