I bet DH also likes a bit of quiet time in the evening to wind down himself too...? Won't be getting that if you've got a hard to settle 4.5 year old on a high from jumping around the living room playing on the wii
I don't think it's the end of the world if he can't play it before bed, he's only 4.5! I don't think a computer game is going to help with the wind-down process before bed, IMO! If it was me I would keep it for weekends for now!
DS (4.5) loves anything techie and his latest obsession, thanks to DH is the Wii.
Usually he can play on it in the day, as an alternative to TV for around 30 mins. During the week DH and I both work so the only opportunity he would get to play is when we get home and before bedtime. We had a rule of no tv before bedtime (same rule before school) which I would extend to computers too but DH thinks this is unfair as that means DS can't play on the Wii during the week.
Any suggestions as to a balanced approach to this so DH DS gets what he wants but without affecting his evening wind down?
I think I am being a bit tough about this so appreciate your views. thanks!
