difficult child is VERY upset. Thanks to me, he has just lost a very profitable bet that he won. He bet the neighbor boy $15 over something and he won. I told him I refuse to let the neighbor boy pay him that because betting for money is an inappropriate activity for their age. We got into a HUGE argument. He does not like the fact that I am not allowing him to collect $15. I told him anytime you take a risk, it is gambling to which he replied it was not a risk because he knew he would win. So, we need to talk about taking advantage of someone. I told him the neighbor boy can not afford this and he is not allowed to bet with anyone for money. I told him that in betting someone will always get hurt. The person who looses can not always afford it and if the debt is not paid, the winner will get bad feelings. It causes too much trouble. I called the neighbor's mom. She will talk to her son also. difficult child takes money issues VERY seriously where the neighbor boy does this all in fun. He has no intention on following through because to him it was just a game. So, difficult child is learning the thrills of being on the loosing end of gambling even if he was suppose to win. Hopefully a lesson well learned before he tries it as an adult and gets into deep financial trouble.
