Do you allow your preschooler to play computer games?

My daughter LOVES to play games on pbskids.com and nickjr.com. Do you let your preschooler play on there? If so, how much time do they spend on their daily?

  • He plays on sesamestreet.com, and he loves to watch some youtube videos - i put on abc songs for him, since he just learned his alphabet (he's almost 3). I let him play until he gets bored, since its educational and makes him happy. For Christmas I'm going to get him a thing that plugs into the computer and has different learning activities. :)

  • Yes-I allow 30 to 45 minutes. I have a variety of game sites saved on our toolbar so she can pick and choose.

  • I encourage it. They are growing up in a computer world. The more they feel comfortable with it, the better.

  • My DD loves Nickjr.com. She would be on it all day/everyday if I'd let her!! But usually between 15-45 mins depending on her behavior, and she doesn't get to do it everyday.

  • Yes, about 1/2 hr to an hour. Few days a week. Mine would also be on all day everyday if I let him. He loves PBS sprout and playhouse disney sites.
