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.
