Her daughter was on a makeshift wheelchair-bed as her mom gambled away.
If you’re the child of a problem gambler, we know it can be a difficult experience. You may be struggling to understand the addiction, and you might be asking, “Why can’t they just stop?” Maybe you want to help but you don’t know how, or you’re worried that your parent’s addiction may lead you to your own. All a child can do is to complain to their parents, and urge them to stop. However, this child couldn’t do anything as her mom gambled away.
On a Facebook post by user Rizza Singson, a woman can be seen playing at Solaire Resort and Casino in the Philippines. However, what caught the attention of many was that the unknown woman brought her disabled child to the casino. The child, unable to move or get up, simply stared blankly at the ceiling, while her mom even put things on top of her daughter.
According to the post, it wasn’t the first time this woman was spotted doing such a horrible thing. As a matter of fact, other netizens claimed to have seen her at other casinos as well.
Rizza claims the photo has been taken by her aunt who was present at the casino at the time the mother and daughter were there. According to RIzza’s aunt, the child was exposed to the noise and cigarette smoke for hours. The post was meant to raise awareness, hoping that the photos would reach the said casino, and attend to the problem as soon as possible.
Rizza said: “If anybody is working for Solaire Resort Solaire Resort & Casino, kindly send them this post so that casino rules can be ammended to prevent something like this from happening again.”
