Do you let your kid?

I have a 3 year old son and I let him play games on the computer, like fisher price.com educational games. Do you?

  • Absolutely!  Not only is it educational but it is excellent for their hand/eye coordination.

  • Yes. Both of my kids like sites like Starfall.com, Sproutonline.com, Pbskids.com, etc. When they were younger, we would go on Fisherprice.com together.

  • None of my kids are allowed to touch the computer (they are 10, 8, 7 and 4). We tried it with the older kids and all they did was fight and mess the computer up so it's been banned. My 4yo does play the Wii and with the DS occasionally. Mostly my kids play outside or with their toys. My 4yo prefers doing puzzles.
