there should be a time limit as it might be bad for the eyes to play it for a long time and also results i poor concentration

Playing video games develops his mental ability and timing.It activates his brain.But still don't let the control go loose.........keep a limit or else there can a chance of getting addicted to it .

my son is too and i have the same problem he is doing good in school and does a good job of cleaning up after himself too the thing i have a hard time doing is getting him to play outside with the other children and that is a problem for me i think the fresh air is good for him so i will make him put the game down and go outside for a while

My son was the same way and even though he did everything he was supposed to do and was still maintianing a high average in his grades I still decided that there needed to be a time limit. i think that it just depends on you and as long as nothing is wrong and nothing is being beglated I feell it is your call and what you are comfortable with. Good Luck!

I would give him a time limit of two hours with a five minute break every fifteen minutes as its not good for the kids eyes constantly watching a tv screen.

He should not exagerate... he needs a social life and he needs to get out... be with his friends, have outdoor activities... this is a must for every healthy child!!!

The only need for a time limit is to ensure he gets some form of exercise and if you allow him out of the house on his own to play with his friends. However good his studies are don’t allow him to abandon ‘real life’ activities. As fun as video-games are a lot more fun can be had living after all.

I think there should be a time limit as to how many hours a day he plays. It can't be too good for him to spend all his spare time on video games.

If you want a time limit you could say an hour and a half..it would take more time to finish the game but it's not like it's going anywhere. You could make sure the important stuff is done first.

I am a grown up woman and I to love my video games. When I have children they will be able to play, but they will also have a time limit. They will also be limited to the amount of TV they watch. The reason why I want to limit them to this stuff isn't because I think that video games or TV is bad for them. It's because I want them to spend time doing other things too, like reading, playing outside. I want them to be well rounded so to speak. I want my kids to know what it's like to play hide and seek at dusk, and all that other fun stuff.
