Gaming is a big issue with many of my mom friends. Do you allow gaming? If so, what type of games are appropriate and how do you control the amount of time they spend gaming?

Here are some of the interesting discussions going on about gaming:
- Most Current: Discussion on China setting out to curb kids’ online gaming on engadget and People’s Daily Online.
- Commentary on Wired about treating gaming choices for your kids the same as you do with movies: "You Grew Up Playing Shoot’em-Up Games. Why Can’t Your Kids?
- New York Times article from Jan. 2007 called "For Parents, New Ways To Control The Action".
