while I realise these can all be used for learning purposes, I am having issues with how much time to allow on each item without feeling like they are in front of a screen all day.
They have to finish school and chores before they are allowed to use them. I allow the oldest two half an hour on the computer a day. the Tv they are allowed to watch more of but I usually record certain educational shows to watch.
My main issue is the xbox. I'm not sure how much time to allow, mainly because it can take a while to get their games up and running.
They do still read books and play outside a good deal
how much time do you allows your kids to use electronics a day? Or how do you manage all the different options without them being screen bound for half the day?
