We’re struggling with time allotments for electronics at my house – television, computer, video games – the whole lot!

It seems like forever that Little Buddy has been allowed 30 minutes a day for electronics. Some days we honestly go over that time and some days, he doesn’t even turn anything electronic on except for school work.

And then there are days I wish he’d limit my electronics time, too. Now, that’s an interesting idea we just might have to explore.

What electronics time do you allow for your children? What are their ages?

  1. I have a 9 year old boy… he has 30 minutes a day for any sort of electronics, so he has to decide whether it’s going to be itouch, computer or Wii. He’s never allowed to do electronics in the morning before school, and he can only do them after school if he is all finished w/ HW and chores. It seems to work out ok. We’re slightly more lenient on the weekends, but never more than an hour.

  2. I don’t even want to add up how much time we all spend some days. Like you said some days are better than others (or worse than others).
