My 21 year old uses they're, their and there incorrectly.

Well....I do that, too, occasionally.

I have a 21 year old, also. I don't think I would correct him if it was online - I'm assuming something like Facebook? I've seen several things on his Facebook that I'm not thrilled with but I don't say anything - after all he is an adult. If he asked me to check over a school paper or I saw an employement application laying there with such mis-spellings then by all means I'd point it out to him.
