Do you allow your 5 year old to Play Video games?

Posted by   + Show Post

If so..

Do you limit a time restriction on how long they can play the game?

What kind of games do they play?

 Yes as long as it is with my husband or I. We have a Wii and she plays games like sponge bob, donkey kong, Zhu Zhu pets. Games that are for her age only. Some of them are fun I will have to admit lol. We also as a family play the Wii Sports (bowling). I only allow her to play on the weekend and only during the week if she doesn't have any homework. It is usually a half hour to 1 hour only.

My kids go through spurts. Sarah our 5 year old loves the searching games. But she plays for a few minutes and leaves..Same with Virtual VilIagers, she gets a few mushrooms, makes sure nobody's sick and signs off. They play outside, climb trees, pick my flowers (trying to get them out of that habit) Since their sister is getting married they are pulling my lilac's off the tree and putting them in a basket and throw them up in the air as one is acting like the bride with a long piece of my'm allergic to lilac's, so they are immediately in the bath when they come in.They play barbies too and they LOVE to do art.

 we don't have any of the "big" game systems.  the only thing we have is a controller that you plug into the tv & has some old school games in it.  you know, pac man, tetris, donkey kong, etc.  i think there is about 25 games but he can only play 3-5 of them.  the kids don't play it that often & when they do want to play i don't give them a set time but i also don't let them play for hours.  i never really pay attention to how long i let them play, maybe about a half hour or so.

I allow my almost 4 year old to play. She can't play for more than an hour unless we are on a road trip. She plays mostly educational games but she does also enjoy angry birds and tennis on the Wii

We don't have any sort of game system. He does use my moms old iPhone and play games on it but that's it, and he's only allowed to ply on that when we're in the car. His daddy is addicted to Xbox and I refuse to have a gamer kid lol. When daddy is home his Xbox stays put away. I have a passionate hate for video games. Kids are supposed to play outside and get dirty not stayed glued to the TV.
