    [MOM]

    As a parent, you want to protect them from everything, which sometimes means saying things they need to hear to keep them safe

    Things like “Don’t Smoke,” and “Don’t talk to strangers.” But how many of us talk to our kids about gambling?

    Teen gambling can become an addiction, a pathway to other destructive behavior. Be aware of the warning signs.
