Even though current research provides considerable evidence that family factors are important in explaining youth gambling, so far they have been understudied. Family influences are usually conceptualized through sociodemographic, climate and relationship factors. The purpose of this study is to examine predictive value of different family variables in explaining youth gambling from two perspectives - parental and adolescents’. Study was conducted with a convenience sample of n=244 parents (Mage=45.98 ; SDage=5.59) and n=244 of their adolescent male children (Mage=16.0 ; SDage=1.21) from two Croatian biggest cities (Zagreb and Split). Administered instruments included measures of family climate, parental behaviour, gambling attitudes, parental knowledge and sanctioning for risk behaviour, frequency of gambling and experiences while gambling. Two hierarchical regression analyses were conducted, with self-reported frequency of adolescent gambling as dependent variable. Results indicate that children’s perception of family and parental behaviour are stronger predictors of their gambling than parental self-report. Parental restrictive control, permissiveness, knowledge of gambling activities, with positive attitudes towards gambling and positive experiences in gambling activities are significant predictors in explaining the frequency of youth gambling. Results will be interpreted in the context of previous studies on youth gambling correlates, with special emphasis on questioning parental knowledge as risk/protective factor.
