My son is not on them 24/7 despite no limits. He reads a lot with no one forcing him to do so. He has learned so many things from being on them. He has so many skills now that will help him in the future with jobs. Skills that I do not have. Skills that my mom, despite, two degrees and a certificate in computers has no clue about. So, what pray tell is so wrong?
I don't think there is a problem. Your son is old enough and has set boundaries for himself without you or dad stepping in. I must say he does have some good parenting for that. However, my kids are still young. They are 6, 4 and 1. Even with my guidance, they still have problems judging what is an acceptable amount of time on their games. Besides that, they get bored easily. They have had games that they played for a while, and then get bored and stop. I am not going to pay the money for these games when my kids are not going to play them. However, there have been kids who have died from playing too much. There are kids who will feast on energy drinks and candy bars and pee in bottles for days on end and eventually, it will kill them. It's sad.
