Only computer time my kids have is at school, or when they have a special project for school that requires the computer.

Our 11 year old know that 1. no computer before school 2. after school if homework is done then sometime before Dinner. 3. weekends - that depends on what's going on and no computer before his weekend chores. If we feel he has been on there to long we just tell him "that's enough".

They aren't allowed to use the computer at all. They are 10, almost 9, almost 8 and 4 1/2. We tried giving them each an hour or so every few days but it ended with them all fighting and the oldest taking over everyone else's time and refusing to get off without a huge tantrum so we just banned everyone from the computer. Plus every time they use it they screw something up on the computer.
