It is usually not an option in our house. They all ask, and I always say no. They *always* find something else to do - usually ending up outside creating pretend worlds. My stance is that they are over to interact and gaming, while bonding, is not really what I feel an 8 yo needs in a playdate. I said usually because my oldest son has 1 hr of media time Saturday mornings, and occ. he will save it and invite a friend over Sat. morning. It happens very infrequently.
