Kids and Gambling
3/4/2013 (Updated 11:01:50 PM)Parents often talk to their kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, but what about gambling?
At Lourdes Hospital, experts suggest looking out for signs that there could be a gambling problem-- which include mood changes, missing money, hosting games, and talking about gambling.
"We as a society don't think of gambling as an issue, it's more like an entertainment thing, it's for fun. As a younger person their brains are more at risk for developing a problem with gambling just like with drugs as well," said Substance Abuse Prevention Instructor,Maria Fabrizi.
