Setting Limits Together
Me: Hey Josh, I think maybe you need to set a limit on how long you play Minecraft at one time.
Josh (9yo): Hmmm, yeah, maybe.
Me: What's a time limit you'd be comfortable with?
Josh: An hour and a half.
Me: Alright. I'm good with that.
That happened yesterday. This morning he went directly to the computer after waking. Without reminding, he set an alarm to let him know when his 90 minutes were up. He happily logged off the computer and has been playing other things since.
