Minors are more vulnerable to gambling because they have less control over their impulses and a lower perception of risk. In addition, they have a greater belief that their knowledge allows them to predict results and make a quick profit.
We must take into account some of the following signs to alert us that a minor has a problem with gambling:
Information on the existence of parental control mechanisms.
If your computer can be used by minors, it is advisable to take precautions and install parental control tools on your devices.
Right now in the market there are many tools that allow you to manage the control of the different devices you have (PC, mobile, tablet) so that minors cannot access certain content, either by blocking Internet access, guaranteeing restrictions on certain websites and allowing access tracking.
The tools can be found on the Internet depending on the device you have and on which you are going to perform the control.
