My son tried to stay home from school today because he was tired from playing video games all night. He's at school.

He's in for a huge surprise when he gets home from school. I took his laptop and remotes for his Xbox. Gonna be hard to play without them.

Good for you, Mama!  I'd be the same kind of Mean Mama if my girls were silly enough to do the same - fortunately for me they leave their laptops and Wii in the living room at bed time.

I agree with you! I would say video games only on weekends anyway. Laptop after homework is done.

I would do the same thing.  :)  DS gets on kicks where he will play for hours or watch tv for hours.(he has reigned this in himself since school has started though)   He is pretty good about stopping when I say so, and getting all homework done.  If it affected school he would lose the privelige.  You are not a mean mama, you are a good one!!

I caught my Son on facebook through his phone last week in the middle of the night!  Well he is grounded from his phone and the house phone for 2 weeks! We do what we gotta do!  Good Job Mama!

Good for you! My SS is just like this - he would play all night if he could. I don't see a mean mama from where I'm standing!
