What children don’t like playing games?! I know mine do. They like playing traditional board games and such, but their honest thoughts are “the more screen time involved, the better.” That means video/computer games are their preferred time wasters, lol.
While we love all things shiny, and tech-like, I do like to set limits as far as how much time they spend on video games. Just one of those mom things. Having said that, there are occasions when I will let them play and play and play. When is that? When they are playing educational games.
One of our favorite online game resources is Learning Games for Kids. It’s a totally free site that has games spanning several subjects. Everything from math and science games, to even art and literature games.
Do you let your kids play a lot of video or online games? How do you handle time limits, if at all?
