My son, he is eight years old, is limited the time when he can play his portable game machine by me.
It's for an hour on weekday, or for two hours on weekend and holidays.
In addition, he can't play it both before breakfast and after dinner.

He is in the spring break now.
He has to put away his textbooks, notebooks, handouts, and so on in his vacation.
Furthermore he has to clean his desk and school supplies, too.
Thus he is busy every morning.

After lunch, he always asks me what time he can start to play it.
While I can't answer it clearly, he tells me the time when he wants to start to play.
The funny thing is that the time when he sets is usually later than I think.
I think it's better that he decides it by himself.
私の息子(8歳)は私に携帯ゲーム機で遊べる時間を制限されています。
平日は1時間、週末や休日は2時間です。
さらに、朝食前と夕食後は遊べません。

彼は今春休み中です。
教科書やノート、プリントなどを休み中に片付けなければなりません。
さらに机や学校で使う道具類もきれいにしなければなりません。
だから毎日午前中は結構忙しいのです。

お昼を食べると、いつも私に何時から初めていいか聞いてきます。
私がはっきり答えないでいると、彼のほうから始めたい時間を言ってきます。
面白いことに、その設定する時間が私が思ったよりもたいてい遅いのです。
本人に決めさせたほうがいいみたい。
