Ryan is hooked on playing video games. I've been dreading this and I can't believe it's starting at such a young age. I wish he had never been introduced to Lego Star Wars and Mario Kart because he has become obsessed. He wakes up asking to play games and whines all day long about them.
Each morning Ryan gets two pennies. Each penny is good for 20 minutes of playing on the PlayStation or tablet. He can cash in his pennies any time during the day. (Unless it is dinnertime, bedtime, or time to leave the house.) When he hands me a penny I set my kitchen timer for 20 minutes and Ryan can start playing. He likes being in control of when he gets to play, and I like that there is a time limit to his screen time.
