Parenting: Kids and gambling

What can parents do to help a child with a gambling problem?

12% of children aged 11-15 gambled in the last week, making gambling arguably a more common risky behaviour than smoking or drinking, says Heather Wardle, assistant professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She joins Jane to talk about how children are getting drawn in, how they are funding their habits, how parents can spot hidden gambling such as skin-betting and what parents can do to support their children.
