I've put a time limit on how much my son can play computer games/playstation/Wii each day. It's 30 minutes on weekdays and 1 hour on weekends. This Sunday, he went upstairs to play some Wii-games. As a good boy he set his timer to 1 hour. Then I went for a walk. It took a few seconds shy of 35 minutes. Of course, I time it to record it on SP. :)
When I came home, I sat down by the computer to enter my fitness data. Then I talked for a while to DH before going upstairs to my still-playing-games son. You must be almost done now, I said. No, he replied, I've still got 26 minutes left. Now, you don't have to be a maths wiz to figure out that there was something wrong with that...
After some serious interrogation, it turned out that when the timer hit 30 minutes, he added another three making it 33 minutes left. And he did that five times for a total of 15 minutes extra time... What do you think? Should I have a good laugh about it or should I simply burst into tears? :)
PS. This is not - I repeat NOT - the first time he's tried to manipulate his game time in some way or another!
