  • Mine play with my daughter's a lot. I kind of wish that my youngest daughter was never introduced to it because that's all she wants to do now.

  • My kids play theirs quite a bit. As long as they have their school work done, their chores done and their rooms cleaned then I am okay with it.

  • DS ,11, is allowed to play all he wants on weekends, but on weekdays he has to earn his time with good grades. A=30 min
    B=15 min C=5min D=minus 30 min F=minus 1 hr. He can only claim his time after homework is done and his room is clean.

  • Rarely. My 10yo has a DS but she has to share it with brother and 2 sisters. I keep it in my room and they are only allowed to play it if they are all behaving and it's to wet or cold to be outside. If they start fighting over it I take it away. Usually they play it once or twice a month (same with the Wii). If the weather is nice they are outside and that's it.
