Q:

My 8 year old son has ADHD and is constantly fighting with his sister to get her electronics from her. Is he ready for his own DSI game player?

What the Expert Says:

Dear 2rfireproof:

Eight years old is not a good time to add more electronics.  Assuming he is a good student, you may consider small hand held games or IPad games.  The issue is really sharing with his sister.  Work on the sharing and reward good behavior. Don't focus on the games.

Good luck.

yes because if your son has his own DSI he will not want to take his sisters DSI. that way there is no fighting and nothing to worry about.
