Where do you set up your computer most of the time? I know many people have laptops, but where is it actually used most of the time?
My 4yo ds is using the computer more & more and I always thought that when our kids were using the computer I'd put it in a common area (eg. lounge/family room) to help with supervision. The problem is that if I leave it in the family room my ds wants to use it a lot more and 95% of the time I'm on it in there he comes up & wants to use it himself. But if I put it in my office/3rd bedroom he doesn't want to use it so much, it gives me a bit more peace & quiet when I'm using it, but I can't see what he's doing as I'm not going to sit directly next to him the whole time he plays his games/does reading eggs. I can hear him (it's a small house) and he usually talks while he uses the computer (like his mummy ) so I usually have a pretty good idea what he's doing ... but I know that will change with time.
The 3rd bedroom is about to become the baby's room, so I'm trying to work out where to set up the computer when that happens? If yours is in the lounge/family room how do you make that work without too many interuptions or endless use (yes, I know I can limit time on the computer, but I don't want to be asked every 5 seconds if it's time to use the computer yet).
