I'm only half joking. Some very successful private schools recommend media/computer game entertainment for weekends only. (It's doable and many teenagers are benefiting.) Computer games can be addictive, particularly with teenage boys - with some of the same consequences as if a drug addiction. Limiting media during the school week helps to foster other interests - at school, in the community, socializing with friends, or hobbies at home. It might also get some children of all ages to spend some time outdoors (if only do some yard-work chores). In the worst case scenario, they'll have hours more per day in which to read, do homework, help with dinner preparation, etc. Good luck.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
