I'm fairly selective on how much I let the kid play video games. He is only allowed to play on non school nights and only if all of his mandatory (not baseball, talking about school work and chores) stuff is done.
Danny hasn't gottent hat big growth spurt your kid has. He is still only 5'4 so I still have about six inches on him but that will soon change. If he ends up like my brother or my wife's brother he will be about 6'4" at graduation. I'm trying to get him into the habit of sleeping regularly now so it won't be a problem when he is bigger than me.
Of course it won't matter either way with his mother. She is of Sicilian ancestry and has no problems cracking him up side the head. If she needs a stepstool to do it so much the better. He toes the line with her.
