How do you keep your wii obsessed 5 year old off the wii? Unplug it and tell him the wii is protesting the large amounts of usage it receives from said 5 year old, and will turn back on when it (his parents and siblings) has had enough of a break.

Please take notes. This is the wisest thing Fiel and I have ever done as parents.

We have the same problem in our house! We told Riker he needed a break from 'games' because he would ask over and over again if he could play them. It's been about 3 days since the break began and he hasn't asked ALL DAY!! Breaks are amazing!
