#83: Gaming and Gambling Risks In Teenagers with Patrick Foster

Season #1

Worried about the amount of time your teen is gaming? You’re not alone! 9 out of 10 parents say teens spend too much gaming. But what is too much gaming? When does gaming become unhealthy or even addictive? And what can parents do to support teens who are problem gamers? We answer all these questions today in a brutally honest interview with Patrick Foster, a former professional cricketer and school teacher whose life was shattered by a pathological gambling addiction that brought him to the verge of taking his own life. After a long journey through recovery and rehab, Patrick now uses his lived experience of problem gambling to help young people and their parents who may be experiencing similar difficulties or who are unaware of the potential pitfalls and dangers of gaming and gambling.
