Mark,So glad you're perfect bud. Good call on this one. If your friend can't seem to manage a child AND a life, then this player is obviously messed up. Brilliant writing. Glad you're here. Die in a fire.Stay-at-home-wow-player,Glad you've found a way to balance Mom duties with WoW duties. I'm sure that's tough. If you really want to contribute, I'd take that fact and write a blog about it. Write about playing wow as a Mom, and how you balance things. I guarantee there's an audience for that.Head over to Blogger and get started. You've got nothing to lose but time, which you seem to have plenty of.Thanks for writing in, and sorry Mark's tiny epeen got the best of him today. Ignore him.Boom

It's embarrassing when you think you lost the first post, then write another post and change what you originally said (Usually for the better), but then we can all see what you said in the first post. At least, it is to me.

I don't think the comment was about being a bad parent at all - seemed more about WoW addiction, regardless of parental status.If I knew someone who was unemployed, living off a lottery win, no kids, no partner, no responsibilities and they told me they spend 16 hours a day playing WoW I'd tell them to get out more and consider professional help.Still, she doesn't say just playing WoW, she also says reading and thinking about it. When I go to the pub with my friends I often end up talking about last night's raid or an upcoming patch or whatever with my guildies. That is a healthy social interaction that just happens to be WoW related. You can plan what to craft next while cooking dinner and you can write a blog post on a laptop from a park bench while supervising your kids in the playground.In summary: If you are *playing* for 16 hours a day then my unqualified opinion would be that its unhealthy. If you are playing more like 6-8 hours a day but doing related things the rest of the time then, well, I'd consider getting another hobby but whatever floats your boat, you know? None of this is neccessarily bad for your kid(s) or your relationship with your husband but it might be bad for *you*.
