My 5-year old boy is obsessed with the Wii. We now have a calendar with Wii days and non-Wii days that he helped make, we've set time limits (10 minutes) and he can earn more minutes by doing chores and doing big boy things (e.g. taking his dinner plates to the sink after finishing eating) ... all this and he is still nuts about the Wii. Doesn't want to go to school because they don't have a Wii. Pouts on non-Wii days. Talks about what he'd do if he was certain characters and applying them to real life situations. Any suggestions on reducing this obsession besides yanking the thing out of the TV and throwing it out the window?
