The act of turning on your computer and signing into an online poker site of your choice to wager, is common practice these days. A good number of these online poker sites, however, do not discriminate and check the age of their participants (i.e., no poker youth discrimination).

With regulation of online poker, opponents of online gambling will have most of their worries quelled, when it comes to their concern over youth gambling.
