Too Much of a Good Thing?

Here at DreamBox, we recommend for best results that a student play at least twice a week for 15 minutes at a time. Some will play more.

However, like Vitamin A, a lot more is not better. To take an extreme, a child playing 3 hours a day every day is crowding out too many other activities for a happy child.

So what is the “right” amount of time for your child? And more importantly, given that the answer varies from child to child, and even week to week for the same child, how do you tell when your child has had the right amount of time? What advice do you have for other parents on scheduling time for DreamBox play?
