Computer Time

If my kids had their way, they'd be on the computer 24/7.  I limit it though, so that no one is on more than a couple of hours a week. 

Do you limit your kids' computer time?  How much time do they get each day/week?

Yes I do but in the summer I'm more lenient with it. She's usually allowed 1-2 hours of media time which could be internet, tv or ideo games during the school year but during the summer I don't really montior as much. she hardly takes advantage anyways LOL

we have a ticket system for the tv and computer.  They each get 5 tickets good for 1/2 hour of tv or computer time for the whole week, they also get one ticket good for a movie.

it all depends on what else is going on, whether they are listening, which computer i want to use.

My 17 y/o is on here and there through out the day. She mainly checks her facebook sometimes she'll watch movies on it.

My 9 y/o is the one that spends the most time on it lately. He loves Club Penguin.

My 6 y/o likes to watch videos of Family Force 5 on Youtube. He's not on for very long though.

I don't really limit the time they are on because it's not all in one sitting. They are busy with other things throughout the day too. If it got to the point that all they were doing was sitting in front of the computer or tv, I'd turn it all off and we'd head outside.

Yes, we limit it. No more than an hour a day.
