  • My son get 20-30 min on week days and 1-2 hours on weekends. It is also the first privilege to be gone when he acts up.

  • I dunno. I wish i could get my son to play them. He has a DS, but the only game he has is nintendog. I guess I should get him some more. I would say if thats all he wants to do, then it should be limited.
