i'm a single parent and my 4 year old son loves playing games and he is lacking at school now I do not want to deprive him this privilege of playing games but how do I balance his pay time and his academics, am not sure if i'm being too hard on him he is only 4 or should I start now to be firm and take the games away from him please advise.
Thank you.

School is more important than games. You need to be a parent and enforce good habits so he will be successful. Only after learning activities are done should he be allowed to play games.

Have you considered trying to find games that incorporate academic topics in a fun way?
The kinds that have been recommended to me are things like taking a set of block numbers and hiding them around the house. Your boys goes and finds them and gets a prize (something small, maybe a sticker) for bringing them to you and putting them in order.

If you are looking for video-type games, there are lots and lots of them out there with learning-based designs.
