Hi, just wondering if you could post a question asking other mums how they control the Playstation wars. My boys 13 & 10 just want to play all the time. So many arguments they are getting me down. I’m also single mum with no support. Thanks.

  • Tell them to play fairly or take the power cord or the remotes. I’m sure they will play nicely then,

  • great answers from all the mums

  • Get games 2 players can play:)

  • If they are going to fight over it, take the PS away completely!

  • Get a game where they can play together. Or get them to have an hour each and thats it. If they can’t comply with this then you just stop both of them using it.

  • confiscate it until they learn to play together or take turns, 1 hr at a time

  • Buy two controller for them so they can’t fight each others and can play together in the same time.

  • Maybe put it away n let them play outside?

  • Could a multiplayer system help? If it were me, I’d get that set up and tell them if it doesn’t work, I’m chucking the lot out. And I’d do it!

  • Set a time limit them tell them to go out and play or do some alternate activity

  • So many great ideas have been suggested. I’d make them earn their ‘playstation time’ by doing chores. buy multiplayer games in which they have to work together in, if all else fails hide the plug that connects the playstation to the tv or wall.

  • Un plug it and tell them to go outside! N enjoy the day

  • Also as KJGARNER said multiplayer should fix da problem, good luck ;)

  • When they fight over the playstation switch it off pack it up and hide it tell them they fight no one gets it be strong and firm, show them mum’s boss, good luck :-)

  • Strong believer of play nice or not at all!
