I let my child get on while I get showered each evening on a website called pogo.com. He can play fun games and relax a little. He gets off the computer when I am done and he is satisfied.

Well I let my children get on the computer all they want I really don't care as long as they don't figth about it but my husband surely does not agree with me that is why when he gets home he tells them to get off and they run to me to get on my laptop and I let them because I don't care how much late they stay up! :-)

Encourage your kids to try fun educational websites. Your kids may be reluctant at first, but once you get them hooked on a good educational site, they might actually enjoy it. My son especially likes a program his school provides in language arts and math. It is called Study Island. There are lots of fun math and reading games, and you might talk to your child's school about the program. :-)

alot of parents use the computer as a babysitter or a tool to keep the chuildren out of their hair for a couple of hours. neither one of these is good for the child.

Do you allow your children to watch TV or play on the computer before doing their homework?
