See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
This is what my husband says all the time. He's a pretty hard-core gamer. He says he isn't...but when he gets home from work at 6, he spends most every evening playing video games or reading articles about video games until he goes to bed at midnight (unless he brought work home to do). I call it "his umbilical cord" because he puts his headphones on and zones out for hours. I'm not too bitter....lol
Because of this, I worry all the time that my kids will become as addicted as he is. Not to say that I stop them from playing games, but I tend to give them educational video games instead of as many button pushing ones. My family is also big about using computers (building, networking, graphics, etc), so my kids know how to use a computer inside and out. Even my 3 year old and my one year old knows how to work a mouse and play educational computer games. They aren't allowed to spend all day at it of course, but they love their computer time in the evenings.
This article I read pretty much says I'm doing alright though...so I guess I shouldn't feel too bad! LOL
Of course, as with everything in life, too much of a good thing is BAD!
