I'm embarrassed to admit that my son is slightly addicted.
It's all he thinks about when he wakes up and when he comes home from kinder.
Even during the day when we are home he wants to play.
I do set limits and put the timer on, but I still hate the fact that that is all he thinks about.
I'm thinking we should say that the iPad has broken, i'm sure Dh can manage something.

My DS (aged6) was getting addicted to his iPad so we implemented a rule that he can only use the iPad on Saturdays. And if he asked during the week he would forfeit time on Saturday. It works great for us.

Great rule but I'm not sure if my 4yr old will understand that. Also how long on a Saturday do you set time limits? Thanks!

Maybe have an calender set up with the Saturdays highlighted and cross off the days? Depending on what we have on he can play for up to 2hrs on a Saturday.

We have had to set up a reward system, so they earn their iPad/minecraft time. I reward jobs and good behaviour with buttons and they need 10 buttons for an hour of iPad time. They are still addicted, but at least the whinging and poor behaviour has stopped and I am able to actually get them to do things around the house.
