At 12 a kid is ceasing to be a kid.At 12 they've probably hit puberty and have been telling dirty jokes on the playground since they were 10.At 12 they've had 4-9 years of experience on a computer (at least the ones these days. But I know that I wasn't the only one who had a computer in the house at 3, even if it was an Apple2C)At 12 they've been taught how to be polite, right from wrong, how to type, etc. The ones who have issues then, are often the ones still saying broski and griefing when they're 20.At 12, the ones who've been gaming since they were small may well have better reflexes and be better than You at learning/playing the game.At 12 none of these things may be true. So the real answer is to base your decisions on the kid in question, and not some blanket rule put out by people with different experiences than you.
