Re: House rules for hand held gaming system (or other electroics)
In our house you earn couch potato time by being active outside. It is not super restricted, but I am not going to let them just sit all day so they have to get up and go play outside (yes even when it is 20*) for at least a little while. Sometimes they play for hours out there and some times we all just go run races for 10 or 15 minutes to get their hearts pumping and get the wiggles out.
