    Maybe it`s GOOD parenting, you know how that theory goes that if you push books on children at too young an age, they`ll hate reading when thery`re older, maybe it could be the same thing here? O.o

    I thought the ending was sort of cute. "I`m not gonna get another one, I`m gonna go swimming!" I agree with Baalthazaq, she was probably just curious about the game her parents were playing, so they allowed her to try it out. If anything it`ll help her learn simple keyboard controls. I mean, let`s face it, technology is taking over and it`s important to get kids involved with computers at a young age.

    OK when the little cutie wants to play all day long and they won`t let her and she throws a hissy fit when and where she`s wants... THEN I can make a judgment call on good or bad parenting. Don`t get me wrong, its cute and all but some decisions are up to the parent whether it be bad or good.

    cmon, she sarted a lock because her mother plays the dumb feckers, and the videos not really showing her play wow. a blind person can play it at lvl 1...if she was level 70+ then i`d worry

    Baalthazaq: "Oh cvome on, letting your kid play something they were curious about watching you play isn`t exactly the worst parenting decision ever."

    I can see it now....

    Daughter: "Whatchu drinkin` dad?"

    Baalthazaq: "Uh... fire water, punkin."

    Daughter: "Can I have some?????"

    Baalthazaq: "Well.... go take those hooker boots off first because you`re making marks on that new hardwood floor you paid for, then you can have a sip of daddy`s burnin` juice. But, fire up World of Warcraft for me before you do that, eh sweety?"

    Nothing wrong that I can see.

    Youngest MMORPG player I ever encountered was on FFXI, he was like 6, but his parents played right alongside him...literally. His mom and dad both played their characters next to his all the time. I even did a BCNM with them all in my party. Pretty good WAR for a 6-year-old.

    @ Fuego

    Impossible in Northshire as its Alliance territory and she would need to be pvp flagged, which is unlikely as she thinks warlocks are a melee class.

    This video sucks and the text is misleading as the kid is just a puppet for her annoying mother holding the camera.

    Outfire, it`s probably because she wants to look like her parents. There`s nothing wrong with a little kid wanting to emulate their parents, it`s completely natural. I`m sure she`ll get bored of WoW soon enough and move on to something else.
