Do your children play video games?
Are you strict with the time they are allowed to spend playing video games?
Do you screen the games they play, before they play him?
Are there any sorts of games you won't allow them to play?
Do you think video games have been beneifcial, to your child/ren?

Gaby is too young to really play video games at this point... she's had a couple of little plays at tennis on the Wii, but that's about it. When she's old enough I will let her play games, but def. age appropriate ones, and preferably not any with violence in them... although that said, a lot seem to have violence, even if they aren't 'violent' games!

Nope!!
None of us play video games here, so.. we don't really have a gaming system! lol. I used to pre-Alexis, but not now.

She DOES play on my computer, though. She plays maybe 1 hour (off and on) a day... and it's always sesame street or Dora games (etc), stuff like that. And I actually encourage it because I feel she's learned a LOT from them.

Do your children play video games? My boys do.
Are you strict with the time they are allowed to spend playing video games? They don't play much... they'd rather be outside.
Do you screen the games they play, before they play him? Yes
Are there any sorts of games you won't allow them to play? Anything with sexual content.
Do you think video games have been beneifcial, to your child/ren? Depends on the type they are playing.

Jassie plays quite a few games on the Wii. She also plays a few games on the computer while I'm giving Lucy a bottle. Its a special activity she only gets to do while Lucy is having a bottle.

I don't want either of them playing overly violent games.

I do think some can be beneficial.
