Parent Involvement and Video Games and School

Short story from the Washington Post on video games and kids, but the fundamental truth lies in two simple sentences:
It called for parents to know what and how much their kids are playing. Too much gaming or too much video-game violence can lead to problems in school, the study found.

Yup -- parent involvement matters here, too.

I totally agree that to much t.v. and video games makes our kids more aggressive and less academic motivated. I have a 10 year old that is only allowed to play video games on the weekend and watch t.v. for no more than an hour a day.
