I have three kids ; 13,12,and 9 years old . They beg me all day to get on the Ipod or computer . And when they get on they don't want to get off . I don't let them play anything bad but I am scared their minds are going to turn into mush from being on it all the time . I have made a chart but don't know what's realistic time set for the week to allow them on it. I have started with 14 hours a week .is that a fair time limit or am I going over board? That's roughly 2 hour a day.

We did 2 hrs per kid, per day, provided their homework/chores were done prior to getting on.

And computer use for school was not counted in that 2 hours.
