I rotate my son and the 2 boys I watch. They can only be on the computer for "X" amount of time (I base it on age and what they are doing) and they can only watch so much tv (based on same as the computer time rule) then they must switch to something else. They must go outside (weather permitting of course) and do other things between the computer and the tv.

he can play up to 2 hours at a time if it's a lazy day then he has quite a few hours in between then can watch for a little bit more if he's been good and has done other things.
He is not allowed to watch t.v or play anymore when it is an hour to bedtime. this way he has snack and down time so he's not all excited and geered up right before bed. I have noticed a huge difference since starting this.
There have been a few days this summer where I didn't monitor how much tv he watched because as a lot of you say it will be on a show but he's playing with toys or doing crafts instead of watching. But I always monitor his game time cause my son is a gamer like me and could play wii for 5 hours at a time if i let him ( he's played more at his fathers house )
