Have you ever tried playing a video game? By the time you log and actually start playing—you have just lost up to 10 minutes. Then to shut it down, that loses more time………so your son is probably only actually “playing” for 10 minutes or so.. My recommendation is to allow 30-45 minutes per session so at least there is time to just relax and enjoy a bit.
In my experience with my son, if he is on electronics for a very short time-its much tougher to get him to stop than if i give him a decent window to play. Just a suggestion.
