comment How much time is too much time playing educational computer games?
Thanks for your answer, but without any citations, I can't accept your claims that content is irrelevant. A quick Google search reveals studies showing that educational TV has demonstrable benefits (nytimes.com/1995/05/31/us/…). Also, my question was about educational games, not TV. As long as the games truly are educational (and not just labeled as such), and the child is getting exercise and other forms of activity, I don't see why a one-hour limit is needed.

When you say "the" recommendations, whose are you referring to? And surely the content is important... Isn't an hour spent playing an educational video game better than an hour spent with the Super Mario Brothers?
