Awareness about Teenage Gambling At Local Schools
Teenage gambling is rising in an exponential rate in the past few years. Family members who gamble multiple television programs like poker tournaments and skillful advertising from the gambling establishments mainly contributes to the increase in the gambling addiction rate. It’s becoming an epidemic among our teenagers with no real solution being presented to the educators of our schools systems. The new stream of commercials related to stop gambling has had very little affect. The commercials are geared towards helping people stop gambling but are not geared towards the individuals who have not experienced gambling at this point in time. The stop gambling commercials have not been able to reach the teenager with a compulsive gambling addiction. They however may reach the parents who may realize their child has a problem.The only way to help our youth is to educate them in the classroom and at home. I remember years ago in health class they educated us on smoking and drinking. This was very effective on those individuals who never started. But the ones that were already addicted the educational programs were unable to reach them. There following educational curriculums will be available to ship by August 2005 in order to give teachers the proper resource tools to deal with this growing problem.
