Hi mfarbo, I do have kids

Hi mfarbo,
I do have kids that play video, handheld and online games. When they were little they also had a time limit. I didn’t allow them to play violent games but has my son got older he started to buy them and like you I didn’t stop him, but he did have limits. They were more into playing physical games, like, basketball and baseball. Besides playing sports I really wasn’t into board games, pinball machines or video games. I’m more physical, that’s why I encouraged my kids to play outside. The beneficial of outdoor games is you’re physically in shape. There are so many obese children due to indoor gaming.
