might look at porn but you can get filters for that. As for M rated games i say let them do it unless they start blowing shit up and abusing animals then you need to take them to the physc ward.

I had the Internet when I was about that age, didn't do me any harm. Likewise, I was playing video games by then too. The impact they have on kids is greatly overstated - provided he doesn't get hold of more extreme examples like GTA, he'll be fine.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and tie some women up in my kitchen and then blow up my local shopping centre. Busy day, busy day.

in his room, or not. they will still be able to get on the internet and do something wrong. as for the M rated game thing... its all up to the parents. unless they become more violent.

The problem with a parent is that he/she is too trusting. I have my computer in my room, and I don't have any filters installed. I can go on anything I want, only my moral stops me from doing so.

I would not advise giving the kid Internet. Besides, he won't be able to join forums or anything such as that until he turns 13. It would be much better to have it out in the open, where the parents can monitor what he does.

I was twelve and a half when I first had a computer and an Internet connection in my room. Even if I had wanted to cause trouble, it would have been difficult with the dialup connection. =p

It was never an issue with me, heck, for the first year and a half I practically asked permission for everything I did online. Again, it didn't really matter since my mom doesn't know anything about computers.

I think it would be best to have the computer set up in a public area, and the games monitored at first. I think most kids that age understand that games aren't "real", but I wouldn't want them to turn into the people I frequently hear at school who scream profanities every other second while playing.

It's just my opinion that computer games and the Internet have evolved into a much more complex form than they were in back in 2001, and I don't think it's best to just dive in. Then again, I'm probably forgetting that these kids have practically always had access to the Internet growing up. Just my two cents.

There's really no harm in it. I've been on the Intertubes since I was 10, if not younger, and I first played GTA 3 around then as well, and Halo not long afterwards. I think, for the most part, that I haven't been much of a danger to society.

And if a 12 year old kid looks up porn on the 'tubes...who cares? Boys that age are always going to be obsessed with that; you might as well not try to restrain it.

The Internet really isn't a dangerous place. Maybe just have your aunt check his browser history from time to time to keep an eye out, but I think it'll be fine.
