Before you know it you have spent hours apon hours mining for diamonds or building stuff in Creative Mode. Just recently I helped a friend building a giant tree for about three or four hours before he decided that he had a major flaw in the basic design and decided to just start again from scratch. He is doing research and design studies in Superflat-Creative-Single Player since then. In the beginning he wasn't even using Creative Mode which means that he had already been harvesting wood and leafs for half a day.
If you want Mini-Warhead to have a real life outside of the virtual reality, you should keep an eye on the time he spends in front of the PC/console.
I still remember the first time my father busted me playing PC past midnight. I was about your kid's age then. Wasn't funny. :/
