When speaking, grammar mistakes are hard to notice. For example, how can one tell if the person you are talking to, actually said, "too" or "to?" Did they say, "their" or "they're?"

The problem we face is becoming more apparent in this age of the internet. Chat rooms are breeding grounds for bad grammar. With the influx of 14-year-olds discovering the internet, they bring their hideous grammar with them and, like a virus, it spreads. People begin questioning their learned grammar skills, and before long, their own grammar begins to fail.

It is partly our responsibility to help educate these young people. Teach them proper grammar. Correct them when a mistake is made, teach them how to correct their mistake, so it can be avoided in the future. It is not necessary to scold, but polite instruction will work wonders.
