Talk to your child. Let them know you have their best interest at heart and want to keep them safe. Explain the problems\dangers of going to and being involved with such sites. Hopefully you have built a good relationship with your child by the time you have to worry about gambling sites and they feel comfortable coming to you for advice. You hope the values and life lessons you have instilled in them since they were little kids will guide them when they are away from home and are confronted with choices.

Part B:

If need be, install parental control software on their phone, computer and tablet.

This is a problem since Facebook started allowing for fun slot machine and other casino type games. You can use parental controls but they don't stop everything.
