Keep the babies away, let the teens play
I like the idea of teaching your children that hard works pays off and being neighborly. It does give the impression that being able to say, 'No More Mortgage!' will make it come to pass and I am not a fan of the product placements but what are you going to do? You cannot escape it these days, especially with the collapse of the newspaper/magazine industry.

Bought the farm!!
I enjoy this game very much because it teaches kids time and money management. I dont think it matters if the game is sped up from real farming because i dont think your child will be buying a farm any time soon. Also even if the game is sped up you still have to wait hours and even days to accomplish some things so Farmville requires a lot of patience. One bad thing is the game promotes using real money to buy things on the game which seems like a waste of money to me. But overall the game is fun and educational for kids.
