My ds is 9, nearly 10. He has use of an iPad and among other things enjoys Minecraft and Terraria. Both these games have multiplayer, online options and he's been asking to use them for some time. He's played LAN multiplayer on MC for a while, ditto on clash Royale.

Im reluctant to say yes to playing online. Am I right in thinking that he'll be playing with adults / teens etc? And that there will be chat facilities of some sort - possibly with lots of swearing / inappropriate language? Is meeting strangers an issue in these games?

As you can tell I'm floundering in uncharted waters. Advice on allowing access to online, multiplayer games please - for 9-10 yr olds.
