His Would-Be Online Respite

Summer is officially over, yes, and because of that, my boy will have to busy himself with school stuffs and with assignments. Summer has come and gone but my boy was just a pure bum to be memorizing the multiplication table, but instead, he has devoted his time reading, Farm Town (which I ask him to do for me, since Mommy is so busy at work), and online games.

However, online games have been affecting his behavior so much that I think his being glued to the Internet always makes him super choleric. I don't know, but I think I must do something to get his mind away from the net. Plus, this youtube thing, with different videos existing in there doesn't help.

New gadget for the kid, this Gameboy is for me...

I'm now thinking of checking shops and gaming guides that will help me buy something good for the son, in order to control his Internet use.

All work and no play makes a boy unhappy, so for his first achiever ribbon, if he works for it, he gets something with remote controls?

it's really hard to manage the computer [and game] time of children. try mo sheng to set limit on the time, like 30 minutes lang. so that you'll not be completely depriving him of the computer and yet you still control his gaming. :)

whooo! hirap maging magulang! happy thursday sheng! mwah!

Kung tayo nga minsan na addict din sa online games eh. Siguro dapat lang god time management.

i agree with kg, maybe setting a time limit would work. i only play the Wii these days, and i haven't been addicted to any online games yet.

Oh my goodness! I cannot give any advice at all. I just got my own Nintendo DS Lite game and have become addicted to Docomodake. LOL. But I totally understand your feeling of needing to pull him away from such singular, introverted activities that the internet just feeds and feeds. Maybe some kind of physical group activity with his friends like a softball game or something? It's good I don't have kids or I would worry all the time!

kakaaddict nga ang online games. kaya daw magset ka lang ng time for the kids to play otherwise maaaddict din sila.

happy weekend sheng!

it's always motivating for kids when they're looking forward to something. ako ba walang gameboy? mag-aaral akong mabuti. hehehe.

yup, yup. there should always be time for study and play or work and play to have a balanced existence. :)

Wise decision. At least may challenge dahil may condition. lalo pag igihan niya ang kanyang pag-aaral. BTW, I-private plurk mo na lang. Mas babad ako sa plurk keysa text. Nakalagay lang yan sa bag most of the time. hehehe

Summer is sadly over. My son will be going back to school this coming Monday.

You made a good decision. It's wise to balance study and play time.
