How much computer time should I let my 10 years old son to get on school nights?

Well, I allow my children get on the computer all they want. I really don't care as long as they don't fight about it. But all they want to do morning, noon and night is play an online game called Warcraft. They get mad when it time to get off. How can I make a time for them to play. How long should they be on it?

Ummm....As a student, I think about an hour each weekends? I think doing it everyday is not good for studying..I once suffered with game addiction! I don't want that to happen to your son. Hope I helped!

Having four children of my own computers and tablets are in use every day in our house. The rule we have is that after school all the important stuff is done first :ie homework and chores, only then can then kids use the computers. Depending on circumstances and other factors we may put a time cap in place, other than that they are free to use them for as long as they want.
