Set time aside for tech-free nights. With many family oriented games out right now, it is easy to get caught up playing games along side your kids. Try focusing on setting time aside to play with your kids while not staring at a screen. Take out those dusty old board games, maybe you can impress your kids on how much fun they can have without controlling characters through a joystick.
Lead by example. Adults can get into games just as much as teenagers do. It is important stick to your own rules, what you do directly affects how your kids perceive things. If they are watching you play video games during "off limit" hours, they will believe it's okay to break the rules.
Limit their time. Kids (and adults) love to fudge on how much time they've been enjoying while playing games. Keep the arguments to a limit by setting an exact time limit with something like the GameDR Universal Video Game Timer. It could be the best $11 you've ever spent if you've got someone who likes to fudge/fib how long they've been playing.
