In recent years, children and adolescents have been shifting from alcohol and drug use to online gambling where they lose money. Because they spend more time at home, they are becoming more and more dependent on the online Internet environment.
Europe and us
For example, France and Germany are building a computer besides alcohol, tobacco, drugs and gambling to risk addictions, Czech police officers do not depend on computer alone. For the time being, the Internet is rather an affiliate topic for them. They have begun to address this rather in relation to gambling, when the number of people who lose money on the Internet has grown. This trend has been recorded by police since 2010. According to psychiatrists, virtual gambling is beneficial to the user because they remain anonymous and are not “inoculate” in any way.
Dangers of computer dependence
The computer becomes a substitute for real life for children and teenagers. Some parents say, “Pay the Lord that our child is dependent on computers and not drugs”. They often do not know that their offspring loses money. The best prevention is to organize time for children and check what they do on the computer.
