Problem gambling can start young; really young. In fact, 39.5% of youth age 12-17 have gambled this past year, and 30% of these youth state that they began gambling at age 10 or younger. The earlier a child starts gambling, the more likely they are to have problems due to gambling
Your words can make the difference. All it takes is a simple conversation.
Talk with your kids, and stop problem gambling before it starts.
