I have never believed in gambling, but when children become adults, they don’t take kindly to your dictating their every move. The day our oldest turned 21, he went and hit the casino. I knew he was secretly gambling even though he did not say where he was going with his friends for his birthday. However when he came back home later that night declaring he had won $21,000, I was dumbstruck more than ever. For a while now, every last one of us had been contemplating replacing our outdated HVAC system unit as well as our thermostat on the wall. Still, when the boy asked myself and others in the house what we wanted him to buy us, I never mentioned that or anything else.. How could I be talking down gambling and benefiting from its proceeds? Then I heard from his sister that he had gone down to our the heating and cooling supplier store. I didn’t know what to say, then just imagine my confusion when our child told myself and others around here he had purchased the finest in heating and also cooling units, to be installed the following week… Deep in my heart I was genuinely gleefully over the sky that all of us could now love the luxury of great a/c, but how could I admit that without encouraging our child to continue gambling? After the new heating as well as cooling unit was installed, I was enjoying the fresh air quality nicely, though I also felt guilty. But when our son told myself and others in this house. He would be using the remainder of his winnings, to pay for heating and cooling classes at a trade college to become an HVAC specialist, we could not contain our happiness. At least he wasn’t planning to become a full time gambler.
