If you're allowing your child to play this game then it's on you to police what he's doing in the game. Maybe make sure the chat filter is on. maybe shut trade chat off. or even shut guild chat off. bottom line is if someone is online there's going to be cursing. and some offensive language. Sure there are times when people go overboard. but that's when you block said person.
TLDR strong language is going to be in the game. so thus if you let your kid in the game they're going to see it more or less.

The sign of maturity is choosing not to use mature language.

I think strong language is a part of the English language and can be used to emphasise and illustrate points, add colour and it can be funny. Of course it can also not be funny, miss the point and be inappropriate.
I have to say I strongly feel that anyone playing a MMORPG is old enough to come across swears. If you're letting your kid on a MMORPG you're opening them up to all sorts of dysfunctional people and they should at least have some cop-on and a certain level of maturity (i.e. I'd imagine 14/15 is OK however 8/9 would be inappropriate).
IF we could agree kids who aren't teenages shouldn't be on a MMORPG then I really don't see the problem with swears and find peoples reaction / moaning about them to be bewildering when there are so many more important things to worry about. They are just words and the value/insult is only offensive if you have a warped sense of what to take offence at.
Physical violence is offensive, fiat currency is offensive, the control of information is offensive... some swears in a MMORPG is par for the course and isn't a big deal to me and is sometimes funny.
