Greetings, Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada.

Does anyone have a great system for limiting the time spent playing video games in their home? Other than just turning it off and saying no. I'm looking for a schedule/system...something to help our video game playing in moderation. Thanks for the help!

This is a toughy for us, but we do have a system currently. My kids get 35 minutes each day. It was 30 minutes, but then they were always wanting to pause their time while they started, stopped, bought stuff (whatever that is) and watched short film clips in between game levels. It was too complicated so I just made it 35 and that counted for all of that time together. They set a timer at the beginning and they can stop for a bathroom break, if we have to leave, meals, etc. Sometimes, I let them have a little more when I need a break or for a reward. They budget their time wisely (usually). Good luck!
