Any PS3 gamers with kids in the 2-4 range?

How do you manage it? Have you almost given up gaming completely? Do you drink alcohol at all anymore? Really interested to hear from you, I have a two year old and haven't been able to really game since she was born, even though I own multiple consoles....

Part of the reason I use birth control is for extra gaming time lol.

There is no was to cut corners you have a kid and will not have as much time to play games as when you were single.

All you can do is take your given situation and manage what time you can for gaming.

I feel you. Work+kids makes every minute of gaming sacred. Have you tried getting them something that will keep you kids attention? Like my 4 year old knows how to play mario. This way, everyones gaming and everyones happy

when they sleep. ^.^

also make a "hobby" day, where your partner takes care of the child for most of the day, and then you do it another time. like once a month for a saturday, or every week on a works day or something along those lines.

You could just adjust your sleep schedule so you can function on less sleep.

I've been living on 3-4 hours of sleep a night since high school.

I found that worked until I was 24. Then it just hit me like a ton of bricks every time I tried it.

I have 3 kids: 6 (7 in a few weeks), 4, and 2.

How do you manage it?


Mostly gaming after they're asleep.

Have you almost given up gaming completely?


Nope. And you don't need to either, you'll find the time eventually.

Do you drink alcohol at all anymore?


Never have before, and never will.

Really interested to hear from you, I have a two year old and haven't been able to really game since she was born, even though I own multiple consoles....


It takes time to get into a routine. It will eventually happen, if you want it to. Just be patient, and see if you can find some odd times to game
