  • Nintendo 64, Gameboy color, Gameboy Advanced, Gameboy SP, Playstation 2, Playstation long as he wants. He doesn't really over play, so, I don't care. If he became obsessed or did nothing else...I would impart a limit.

  • She plays some cartoonish game on my husbands PS3 sometimes, but the only thing she has of her own is a handheld Leapster thing. I don't give her limits on it, she usually messes around on it for about half an hour laying in bed before falling asleep and for about an hour at rest time.

  • DS (6) has a DS and a wii. He only uses the DS in the grocery store or in the car ( he is sensitive to sounds and this helps) He also has a wii. he plays for about 30 on week nights and longer on weekends. In fact to much on the weekends. He is obsessed. I admit it, though I don't know if it is a childhood obsession or an autistic obesession. We have really had to crack down on the amount of games he plays it has been the start of many of our melt-downs recently.

  • The kids have a hand held V-Smile and a Game Boy SP. They can play an hour a day each.

    We have a Wii and an XBOX 360, but the kids aren't really allowed to play them. The Wii is our room for the netflix thing.. haha
