3. Résumé


« This study explored the possible links between family risk factors (i.e., parent gambling and parenting practices) and adolescent gambling. [...] Results showed that adolescent gambling frequency was related to both parents’ gambling frequency and problems. However, adolescent gambling problems were linked only to fathers’ severity of gambling problems. Low levels of parental monitoring enhanced adolescents’ risk of getting involved in gambling activities and developing related problems. A higher level of inadequate disciplinary practices was also related to greater gambling problems in youth. These links were significant after controlling for socioeconomic status, gender, and impulsivity-hyperactivity problems. » (p. 398)
