Today, children are more knowledgeable than any generation in history. Even so, there are many things in the adult world children do not understand. It is important for children to understand addiction and mind control at an early age.

Gambling is an addictive form of entertainment — gambling is putting hard earned money at risk.

Even though gambling revenue in 2012 was $34 billion plus casino operators and politicians can no longer wait for gamblers to visit the casino — they are in the process of putting gambling on every computer and cell phone in the country. Every child in the country will have gambling at their fingertips.

It’s time for adults to teach children about mind control and gambling addiction at an early age. If children understand debits, credits and balancing the books they will grow into adult hood with a secure financial future.

Protect the children from teenage gambling addiction.
