Bad parenting, not bad gaming.

His parent (or whoever) is watching and can't say or do anything about it.

Hell, I'm in my mid 20s and I still get comments from my parents over the phone for my "colourful" language.

Epic fail parenting. Well done folks.

But hey, lets blame it all on games!

The effects of being a born loser... also of playing CS for too long.

Possibly a chicken and egg situation. This has nothing to do with gaming or age.

Damn I missed the link. If it was a young child using bad language, it was probably picked up from school, the gaming just invokes the emotion that the language then conveys.

School? I think it starts in the home! One of the kids I pick up on my school run has a 3 yr old brother who was banned from kindy for excessive use of foul language. Some of that would rub off on the other kids there but from what I gather, foul language is par for course in a large number of homes, as was in this particular one.

Well he is a young kid and I suppose it's better than him getting bored after 30min and getting up to any mischief.
