Okay I have a 7 yr old and he is a FREAK when it comes to the gaming systems. We monitor his time playing them and he's allotted maybe an hr a day after homeworks completed if it's not bath night. He will usually get upset and throw a fit when we tell him no he can't play or his times up. Than that's when we have to ground him from it for a few days. Well my question is that he really wants that DSI thing. The handheld gaming thing that he could take with us on trips and would much more convienient than the hook up for the tv. My fiance went and bought him one for Christmas and informed me of it last night. I was a little upset and was thinking that he's too young for it. I think my fiance was just trying to get back at me for buying our 4 yr old a new bike but that's besides the point. At what age do you think it's okay for a boy or girl to have a handheld gaming system. I don't want him to break it, or be irresponsible, or lose it. They are really expensive and not something we could just go re-buy if it gets broke.
