And I so don’t want one in my home, but I also don’t want to be that mom. You know, the one who won’t get things for the family that everyone else seems to have, thus appearing unreasonable and stingy.

I told them there would be a firm “no games day” once a week. There would be no games before cleaning up the living room and bedrooms. No games before homework.

Is that reasonable? Should I just let them have it? Because, really, every single one of their friends has one, and so they always want to play elsewhere.
