Disconnecting to connect

Most of the summer has been scorching hot! This is pretty normal for my area but this year our pool went caput. So without any relief from the heat my kids have spent a good portion of the summer indoors. Indoors connected to PlayStations, iPods, computers, laptops, dsi's, T.v.'s. and cell phones. So I have decided for the rest of August to really start limiting their electronic playtime.
I have already started refresher "back to school" courses for my youngest two children. Reading, writing, math, science, and bible. Of course they have daily chores to do. The younger two who are 6 and 8 do the unloading of the dish washer and unloading of the washer and dryer. They also have to make sure to pick up all their own stuff from around the house daily. From now on they are Not going to be allowed any electronic time until all their studies and chores are done. We already forbid electronics at the kitchen or dining room table. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner should be a time for family not games or internet.
I feel like you have to be careful and watch the amount of time they spend on electronics or it will take over their lives. They are young and too impressionable.
