When it comes to my kids playing videogames, I have two simple
rules: no more than 45 minutes per day, and nothing with blood,
guts, guns, and other violent images.
That leaves out a lot of the hot new releases, like Assassin's
Creed III, Dishonored, and Halo 4. If you're a parent like me, that
can create something of a quandary this holiday season: The kids
have outgrown the educational stuff, but you'd rather not expose
them to all that realistically rendered brutality.
Fortunately, alternatives exist.

Money Saving Tips
Take several weeks of summer break and add a dash of reminders about back to school and you will have an unhappy child with shrill shrieks of protest. With Back to School shopping well under way, many parents have already begun the task of getting their kids ready for the first day of class.
But how can you prepare your child mentally without suffering from your own melt down?

Fresh from spending over $55 at the movie theater to watch Toy Story 3 in 3D today, I am here to write this week's Frugal Family post. I could talk about how we saved money by opting for the matinee, but the reality is that spending $38 for movie tickets is not exactly frugality at its finest. The movie was excellent and the 3D effects were totally worth the extra money we paid to rent glasses, but the experience served as a reminder of why theater outings continue to be a rare treat for my family.
