I work with youth, middle school age, with a "prevention" talk about gambling primarily on the INTERNET. It is for this reason that I am very concerned that today's youth are so much more "INTERNET SAVVY" than their parents.
Therefore, your study that asks "did your father gamble?" in 90% of the cases the father did not gamble on the internet.
FOR TODAY'S YOUTH GAMBLING ON THE INTERNET IS "NEW GROUND" FOR THE YOUTH TO EXPLORE. In many cases their parents and other adults in the household have no clue as to their gambling in the net!!

This alarms me.
