Family harmony has a significant relationship with children development, as well as gambling family. The focus of this paper examines the development of children in gambling families. The research design used is phenomenology with an analysis that refers to the perspective of Creswell. Data obtained through interviews and observations. This paper found some substance results, namely in families whose fathers were involved in gambling, there was a transformation of an idol in the family from a father to mother figure. The cause is the absence of father involvement in the development of the child and the failure of the father to become a role model in the family. Children who are disappointed and angry at the figure of a gambling father, have a tendency to behave aggressively. Aggressive behavior by children is like resigning from the environment because they feel ashamed and difficult to socialize, become temperament, and commit acts of violence both physically and verbally. Recommendations are given to families involved in gambling to pay more attention to the possible impact of parental gambling on child development and take precautionary measures. Further research is needed to examine the deeper impact of parent gambling on children from a child's perspective.
