How much time is to much for video games?? when should I insist on my 10+ years to cook, clean and pull weight around the house.

It's hard to put a defined time limit on another person's child. I would say, perhaps, to make sure your child is doing his/her daily chores (which, at 10, should have several, like cleaning room, making bed daily, folding their own laundry and putting it away, setting or clearing the table, maybe some once a week chores like taking out the trash, cleaning the bathroom, etc) and homework first. Maybe limit until a certain time frame, like after dinner every night for an hour if all chores and homework are done? Something like that is what *I* would do personally, but again, I don't know what your household is like. I think three hours or more of tv and/or video games is too much.
