Hi Debbie

Continue providing emotional support for your son. Let him know that you care about his well-being and that you’re there to help him overcome this challenge.

It’s great that he’s planning to work and repay the money lost. This can teach him important financial lessons about responsible money management.

Ensure that your son understands the risks and dangers associated with gambling, including the potential for addiction. Education is a key component of prevention.

Encourage him to pursue other interests and hobbies to fill his time and reduce the temptation to gamble. Family activities and outings are a great way to bond and create positive experiences.
