Mine are 8 and 9 and so they have Wii, Dsi, Nexus and Nabi. We let them play it when we are busy and have times when there are no electronics at all. We try to go outside with them often. Then only times it's allowed in the car is on long car trips. Keeping busy is key for us.

Well, I guess I'm generally more indirect...it's more like encouragement to play outside...like a new ball, colored chalk, outside toy like bubbles with fancy wands...I take both my kids to the YMCA a lot to swim or climb the rock wall or do the kid weights...Personally, I would worry less about the music than about the TV all the time. My kids usually only go for the TV when there is nothing else offered. Once I offer something else like cooking or playing a game with them they want that far more.
