My neighbor plays WoW and so does his oldest child (9 years old). He uses the parental controls for his son in order to help both of them get done what they need to do. While his son plays WoW he can clean up the house, make dinner, or do some of his work he brought home. After the WoW time they eat, clean up together, and then the son does homework and such while he plays a little WoW.He sometimes uses WoW as a reward. If his son is helpful around the house, gets good grades or test scores, or has some other achievement he allows for extended playing time in WoW.Sure enough, his son now has incredible time-management skills since he always knows how long it takes to do chores/homework, how much time he has to do an avg match in WSG (he loves flag running), and how many mobs he can kill in a given set of time. He knows if he wants to finish a kill quest (ex 30 kills) he should need about X minutes on avg. This is because he has to plan his time due to the parental controls. My neighbor wishes he had games to teach him time management skills when he was little. He says he'd be on time to work way more often. :-)
