Ontario Underaged Gambling

A New report suggests one third of teenagers age 13-15 gamble. This interview show's teenagers cutting class and writing IOU's to gamble.

Some say they're just gambling for change, others say they're gambling for big money. The study in question was held up by John Kelly. Who says that 40% of teens that do gamble play poker, and more often than not the majority of them gamble online.

A presentation called House of Cards is being presented to students in effort to teach them that 'the house always wins' .. but as a mom and a gambler.. are they confused? If the kids are playing poker, and they're playing poker online, they're not betting against the house.. If we're going to teach children the dangers of gambling, shouldn't we be teaching them correctly?
