I don't think it's a good idea to teach children to gamble because it's something that involves money and children are very inconsequential and could end up harming themselves if they don't have any judgment
But why do you see something bad in the game of poker, then all professional poker players are bad in your opinion.

Children are much smarter than we think!

I have learned to play poker since I was 10 years old, I think it would be good to learn poker as a child and if it goes well, then from the age of 18 you can start making money
I started playing card games even before I went to school. And I'm not exaggerating, I played cards when I was 4 or 5 years old. I don't have children, but if I did, I definitely wouldn't teach them to play card games. In my opinion, children should do sports, music, but poker is definitely not for children :)

This is a very serious thing to consider.

Of course poker teaches math, money management if done properly and strategy. But it also teaches how to risk money on the odds of winning.

Worst of all it teaches when a parent is bluffing. Our kids look up to us to always be honest. If they catch you bluffing too much they will loose that sacred trust in you.

I think there's nothing wrong with poker since it's another mental sport like chess and I think it would be good if they taught it in schools or universities.

In my opinion, teaching as one of the types of game that makes you think ahead, predict the actions of others and is just an interesting game - yes. But to teach that you need to lose money or make big bets in the hope of making money - definitely not.

Although I am not very much in favor of it, I taught my granddaughters at the time when they were 12 and 14 years old, I recently taught my grandson when I was 15 years old, I started between 13 and 15 years old

I feel that poker, involving money, shouldn't be taught to children because they won't understand the responsibility that comes with managing it

I have no children. But I know for sure that I would not want my children to learn to play poker. Gambling is not entertainment for children.
