Several of my kids have recently become interested/obsessed with being on the computer or playing video games. I am curious to find out how much time other moms allow their kids to be on the computer or playing video games in 1 day. The ages of my kids that want to be on the computer or playing video games are as follows : 14, 12, 8, 7, and 5.
So at these different ages, how much time do you allow? How much is too much?
Thanks in advance :)
Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July :)

My kids are 10, 8, 7 and 4 and aren't allowed to touch our computers for various reasons.
We have a Wii and a DS. They occasionally get to play each. It is not every day. Maybe once a week if they behave. They all have to share both. The DS usually only comes out once a month and they get all day to play if they share it. The Wii comes out once a week or so only if they are beahving. As soon as they start fighting over it I take it away.
They watch a lot TV, though. I usually just let them watch whatever for however long they are quiet. But in the summer I require them to spend most of their day outside playing. Today it's super hot so the girls are inside watching TV, one is playing the DS and my son is outside playing with his friend.
