Апстракт


The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between parental dimensions,
estimated by children and problematic Internet use among young adolescents. The
study also examined the relationship between parental control of their children's online
activities and problematic Internet use. For this purpose, 218 eighth and ninth graders
completed a questionnaire composed of general data and data on Internet use, devised by
the authors, as well as Internet Addiction Test (IAT) (Young, 1998a), and Children's Reports
of parental Behavior Inventory (CRPBI-57) (Keresteš, 1999). The results showed a
statistically signifi cant negative connection between the acceptance by mothers and father
and problematic Internet use among young adolescents. As predicted, we found a
statistically signifi cant positive connection between psychological control by the mother
and father and problematic Internet use. We found no positive connection between behavioral
control of the mother and father and problematic Internet use. There was no statistical
signifi cance in Young's revised Internet Addiction Test scoring in adolescents, pertaining
to the degree of controlled Internet use by parents.
