I'm not a member of what you'd call a gaming family, heck I'm the only one in the family who even plays games, (unless you count my sister playing tap tap revenge on her iPod...) but these seem like sound rules and since I'm going to uni next month I'm going to apply these rules to myself as much as I can, this was a good read :)

Sounds like you have a great attitude already. Glad the article was helpful -- best of luck in school!

Number 7 is gold - my boys are pretty cool about having to end their game time if I allow them to finish their activity, quest, whatever, but my wife - a non-gamer - just doesn't get it.

There are some tips here for the non-gamer in your family that might help:

Aww, no more club penguin for the kids during term time hours. It's almost cute.

Linking this to my dad. Although long past school myself, my little sister spent a lot of time on Free Realms this summer and I'm sure this article will help with the restart of term time.

I miss the days of haggling with my parents over EQ hours as a kid :D
